Accessibility is one of those issues that seems to lurk in the back of many a designer's mind. Can't ignore it, especially as it becomes an increasingly frightening Legal Thing. But don't want to deal with it; after all, it'll screw up the design, right?
Not right. You can have a design that's both accessible and enjoyable if you follow universal design principles. That's what Universal Design for Web Accessibility: Solutions for barrier-free user experiences, the newest Rosenfeld Media book-in-progress, will teach you. Written by Sarah Horton,co-author of the Web Style Guide, and Whitney Quesenbery, co-author of Storytelling for User Experience, Universal Design for Web Accessibility will provide you with the practical principles and examples you'll need to create sites that everyone can use.
