Put simply, website accessibility is an important issue that revolves around the improvement of website content access to people with disabilities. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) have created the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) to assist in creating a better user experience for everyone.
Gian Wild from Accessibility Oz gave a great keynote speech at Drupal Downunder 2012 Conference that highlights the importance of website accessibility and the differences between WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0.
If you would like to learn more about website accessibility and WCAG I would highly recommend you watch / listen to Gian Wild’s keynote. A subtitled version of Gian Wild’s speech is available through Universal Subtitles.
If you are interested in increasing the accessibility of your audio / video website content feel free to leave a comment or contact Trindy Oakley.
