Screen reader survey

The WebAIM folks surveyed screen reader users, and published their first look at the results.

I found some very surprising conclusions regarding images and frames. It seems that actual users have different ideas about them than the accessibility "experts".

Best Reply Award

The best reply functionality has been in place just over three weeks and since it is a new month I thought I give the top posters a little credit. I very please to announce that wolfcry911, a member for over 4 years is the first to receive the best reply award. Well done wolfcry911. Each of his posts were marked by different authors, and were surprisingly short and to the point.
Wolfcry send me your postal address details and a book that you would like and I will drop a note to Santa.

Accessibility and the Dyslexic

I have been meaning to pass on a series of articles related to the issues dyslexia causes for some time now. The series was published a couple of years ago, and Roger Johansson blogged about it a couple of weeks ago, bringing the series back to mind.

Dyslexia pretty much flummoxes me, so I'll assume you too. We can imagine most visual and mobility handicaps, but I, for one, have no way to anticipate the problems our designs might cause the dyslexic.

Dyslexia is not a single symptom disability.
