13 12/2010 Use uppercase (capitalised) text judiciously
I don’t normally re-post articles regarding website data-entry and styling but I find myself having to re-iterate warnings against the over-use of uppercase or block-caps to clients continually, so this article from Roger Johansson, one of the web’s foremost authorities on accessibility issues, was nicely timed.
09 11/2010 Accessibility myths in 2010
Five and a half years ago I posted an article about Accessibility myths and misconceptions where I tried to explain why some commonly held beliefs about web accessibility are incorrect. Early this year, Ian Pouncey posted a few other Web accessibility myths.
14 06/2009 To mode or not to mode?
As regular visitors will have realised, we’ve recently re-built our site from the ground up, deleting old features and out-of-date content and introducing some new features along the way. After perusing Modal Windows In Modern Web Design at Smashing Magazine it got me thinking about using a modal window for our contact form or PropellerMail login form.

A new study from Opera finds that the overwhelming majority of web sites don’t adequately support web standards. The good news is that compared to previous studies, more web sites are valid today than they were in previous years. The bad news is that just 4.13% of the URLs included in the studies sample size — which was over 3.5 million web pages — passed the W3C validator.

The federal disability commissioner has threatened to “name and shame” government departments and agencies which do not make public information accessible to people with disabilities.
07 08/2008 Grocery website 'discriminates'
A DISABLED Brisbane man has lodged an official complaint against the Federal Government’s new grocery price watch website, claiming the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is in breach of the Disability Discrimination Act.
Les Kerr, 53, of the suburb of Wooloowin, is vision and mobility impaired and says the GROCERYchoice website is inaccessible. His complaint is about the difficulty in using the website.
As a regular viewer of Channel 7’s ‘Sunrise’ breakfast show I was interested this morning when they roped in Pete Blasina to run through their new and supposedly ‘cutting edge’ website and tell us how great it is.
Graphically the site isnt the worst I’ve seen though its not the best either and is extremely cluttered and disorganised. It almost looks as though they made a list of features they needed to include then threw them at a magnetic board…
