Hi

I was wandering if anyone has any recommendations on any practical recent books that are an authority on current accessibility issues?

I have read through web standards solutions which by the way is great but I would like a little bit more. Stuff like when to use title tag and when to use alt tags etc

Any help always appreciated

Have you read Joe Clark's "Building Accessible Websites"?

It's available on line at

http://joeclark.org/book/sashay/serialization/

It gives an overview of the whole thing, but not too much detail in a "use xxx in this situation" kind of way.

thanks for that - I hadn't realised that was available online. It should be useful.

I suppose I am really looking for an accessibility reference book.

Something that also takes into account the way browsers interpret things (for those that aren't visually impaired). for example - I can't remember right now which browser does what but I know one does not show alt tags but will show title tags so which is best to use in which situation - answers to things like that in reference form.

thanks

For what it's worth I've always found this site very useful.

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!

Interesting link HellsBells. Especially like the link to check pages in Lynx Browser.
