How accessible is your blog?
There's always lots being said and written about making websites more accessible for disabled people, particularly when it comes to the online presences of businesses, shops or other service providers. But what about blogs?
Since they're usually set up by individuals who just want to quickly and easily write about the details of their life, post photos of their cat or share interesting links they've found on the net - using the widely available tools such as Blogger, Typepad or Wordpress, and their astonishing array of pre-built page designs so that they don't have to worry about complicated things like HTML and CSS - accessibility is often not especially high on the list of priorities. However, if you do want to try and make your blog more disability-friendly, then bookmark and keep an eye on All Access Blogging. It's a blog (well, it would be, wouldn't it?) packed full of hints and tips, plus links to useful articles and tools.
If you've got a standard blog from one of the big services, have you made some particular changes to your template to make it more accessible to readers with a range of disabilities, and how easy was it to do? Let us know in the comments.
