Tue, 24 Apr 2007 00:14:55 +0000

A List Apart has a great blog entry detailing the controversy over all of the latest Web 2.0 applications and accessibility / usability compliance. The article is out there on the edge and talks about thinks like XML Schema namespaces, DOM Scripting, and DTD extensions. This is pretty heavy stuff and not for the average FrontPage user.

Frankly, I look at some of the latest Web 2.0 applications and think that people using screen readers are getting further and further pushed to the back of the bus.

I am so happy to hear that there are folks out there who understand all of this and are following through to keep accessibility in the forefront — or at least a lot closer than the back of the bus.

Martin Kliehm has written a brief article at A List Apart where he takes a closer look at the Accessible Web 2.0 Applications with WAI-ARIA. Based on one of the most recent W3 family member Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) Suite Overview, Martin dives in to the nest of role attributes as well as some of the states and properties W3 has been suggesting as the new accessibility drafts for web applications. […] In other words: get used to adding some roles to your markup already now. It can’t hurt and it will most probably be a standard rule for the future.

Martin Kliehm has written an excellent article on A List Apart entitled: Accessible Web 2.0 Applications with WAI-ARIA. If you're a major geek like I am, you'll enjoy learning about the tabindex attribute, namespaces, and more and and how they can help make our 2.0 sites more accessible.

[…] Op internet wordt er veel geblogd over AJAX en toegankelijkheid. Het houdt veel mensen bezig. Helaas betekent dit dat er blijkbaar nog geen pasklaar antwoord is. Het goede nieuws is echter dat veel mensen er serieus mee aan de slag zijn gegaan. Zo is er de Hijax methodologie ontwikkeld dat uitgaat van „progressive enhancementâ€?, wat toegankelijkheid zou moeten waarborgen. En het W3C werkt aan standaarden voor Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA). Ik ben heel benieuwd naar de ontwikkelingen op dit gebied. […]

[…] There was a terrific article by Martin Kliehm about a week ago on A List Apart about the W3C’s standards draft for creating accessible Web 2.0 applications. (It’s known as ARIA for Accessible Rich Internet Applications). The intention is to increase usability by sidestepping some of the limitiations of (X)HTML, tapping into the extensibility features inherent in compliant browser environments. […]

Thu, 12 Apr 2007 19:52:35 +0000

[…] Ik schreef eerder al uitgebreid over ARIA (in „W3C maakt werk van toegankelijkheid webapplicatiesâ€? en in de nieuwsbrief van februari 2007). ARIA is een veelbelovende W3C-aanbeveling (in draft, maar toch al ondersteund door sommige asstive technology vendors) die de toegankelijkheid van webapplicaties eindelijk een serieuze boost kan geven. Nu kan iedere webdesigner kennismaken met ARIA dankzij een duidelijk en hands on artikel op A List Apart. […]

[…] Martin Kliehm has written up a nice overview of what is going on in the world of accessible Web 2.0 applications. […] I have been playing more and more with the graceful failback side of Ajax, and how microformats can help out. It seems to be able adding semantics to our simple building box (CSS classes and such). […]

[…] One of the drawbacks of web 2.0 apps is that the limitations of (X)HTML can cause usability and accessibility problems. The W3C’s standards draft for Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) looks to address those limitations. The underlying reason for moving in this direction is that the W3C state that JavaScript is found on over 50% of all Web sites today, dramatically affecting the ability for persons with disabilities to access Web content. To have a read and check out some code, have a read of this ALA article. […]
