Building Accessible Websites
by Joe Clark
Publisher: New Riders Press 2007
Number of pages: 432
Most of the time, people relate accessibility with boring and un-pretty sites, a myth borne out by oldschool accessibility advocates, whose hostility to visual appeal is barely suppressed. This book refuses to advocate the unnecessary compromise of visual sophistication for accessibility. And yet, it will not advocate the compromise of accessibility for visual sophistication, either. As you will see, appearance need not come at the wholesale expense of access, or vice-versa. Once you're finished with this book, it may be time to upgrade your design and programming skills to match your newfound mastery of accessibility.
