Today marks the launch of Access iQ™, a social enterprise initiative of Media Access Australia, with the goal of equipping web folks with the information they need to make sure their websites, web applications and digital experiences are accessible and inclusive. What I love about the concept is that the site aims to provide straightforward and practical information, on a role-by-role basis.
While we all love to have perfect world accessibility solutions, the reality of time, budgets and skill sets often dictate or influence what actually gets implemented. We definitely need more practically focussed solutions that help to create a great user experience for everyone, to support varying levels of abilities. Access iQ is step in the right direction, by providing a hub of practical accessibility information.
I’m also pleased to see that our Attitude Adjusters is on the site – Making accessibility part of culture change: it’s all in the attitude. The cards are a free resource available for download at Stamford Interactive’s Print Your Own Attitude Adjusters cards.
