Accessible University 2.0: Learning About Accessibility (AccessComputing News - November 2010)
The newest addition to the AccessComputing website is the revised Accessible University (AU) 2.0, a fictional university home page designed to demonstrate a variety of common web accessibility problems and solutions.
The new site includes four pages: a home page explaining the tool and how to use it, an inaccessible version of the AU home page, a page that explains all the accessibility problems and their solutions, and an accessible version that implements these solutions. The site can be used to demonstrate web accessibility principles at trainings, presentations, and workshops on accessible web design. It can also be used independently by individuals to learn about common web accessibility problems and solutions in an easy-to-understand way. Visit AU at www.uw.edu/accesscomputing/AU. AU was originally developed by AccessIT in 2002.
