uiAccess was developed in 2001 as a free resource for universal interface design and usable accessibility information. In 2003, I joined W3C WAI and then didn't have time to do much with uiAccess. You can still find some useful and currently-relevant information from the uiAccess home page.
In early 2015, I reduced my time at W3C and am putting more effort into related projects:
- Providing web accessibility training and Accessible UX Seminars.
- The TAdER Project — Text Adaptability is Essential for Reading — that aims to encourage product managers to include specific text customization functionality in their products (including Adobe Reader for PDF, web browsers, e-book and EPUB readers, other 'user agents', and content) by:
- Raising awareness and understanding of users' needs among tool developers, standards developers, content providers, and policy makers.
- Providing information to support standards developers and policy makers to include specific text customization requirements.
- Providing suggestions to tools developers and content providers on including specific text customization functionality.
- Updating the book Just Ask: Integrating Accessibility Throughout Design, which
helps designers, developers, and managers
create websites, software, hardware, and consumer products that:
- are accessible to people with disabilities and older users,
- provide a better user experience for all users, and
- help organizations maximize the benefits of accessibility.
I welcome feedback on any of this!
Since I developed this site in my non-existant spare time, I have not been able to polish it. If you have issues to report, I would like to know about them in case I can find time to fix them. If you have suggestions for site improvement, I'd really appreciate your input!
