Google shows interest in Accessibility... so should you.


Recommended Posts

Here are some reading material to show how Google is now getting interested in accessibility... so it is about time developers do to.

 

  • Workin' it on all browsers
    To web surfers, Google Chrome is a quick, exciting new browser. As webmasters, it's a good reminder that regardless of the browser your visitors use to access your site "Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, etc." browser compatibility is often a high priority. When your site renders poorly or is difficult to use on many browsers you risk losing your visitors' interest, and, if you're running a monetized site, perhaps their business.
  • Making sure your site appears properly in different browsers.
    Users typically view your website using a browser. Each browser interprets your website code in a slightly different manner, which means that it may appear differently to visitors using different browsers. In general, you should avoid relying on browser specific behavior, such as relying on a browser to correctly detect a content-type or encoding when you did not specify one. In addition, there are some steps you can take to make sure your site doesn't behave in unexpected ways.

  • Google, meet Web Standards.
    The intention was, of course, to make the code used for the GSA's search interface conform to Web standards, be accessible, and work in all devices. Joe asked me if I would be interested in taking a look and suggest improvements. You can?t really say no to a request like that, can you?
  • Google Goes To Web Standardsville, Part Two.
