Pretend you are google....thats what I do
:cool:Google is blind, it’s a computer, it has no hands and it can walk. YET, it can see my web sites, isn’t that amazing.
That is the way to start thinking when developing an assessable web site.
Step 1 - Pretend you are blind; Have someone read the code in the site to you, which should tell a story in itself.
Step 2 - Pretend you can’t type and try navigating using only a mouse.
Step 3. Disconnect the mouse, and then try navigating.
Step 4 - Put everything in Chinese writing, then would the layout be self explanatory or would it loose meaning without the text. In other words let the pictures and graphics lead users.
Step 5 - Try reading it from a distance, stepping back from the screen and taking a look, are the headings still visible?
Step 6 - Is there a play the text button available, is it alt tabbed well and at the top of the site?
There are more things to do but that should start you doing rather than thinking too much. Look at the practical as must as possible.
TEST and RE-TEST
