|Usability and Accessibility Introduction
There are few things that annoy Web users more than not being able to accomplish easily the task for which they have come to a Web site.
(Giga Information Group analyst Martha Bennett, May 22, 2000)
This is what website accessibility and usability is all about: making sure your audience gets what they want and need from your website efficiently and effectively.
The sad fact is that many websites don't do this. That is why website usability has become a hot topic. It is why the World Wide Web Consortium (W3) has put out a set of accessibility guidelines. It is why the Americans with Disabilities Act includes websites in its accessiblity guidelines.This presentation provides a general overview about usability and accessibility, particularly focusing on the W3 and ADA accessibility guidelines.
