Accessibility Issues

[Tom McNulty]

Writing for the Disabled Web
User Remember that many people are using specialized software to access the web. Some, like those with blindness, are listening to the contents of the web page with the help of voice output software; others are using large print software; others might be using voice input, rather than the traditional mouse and keyboard.

In order to reach the greatest possible audience for your page(s), follow the WAI Quick Tips Reference:
