Accessibility: What Does It Mean? And What's in It for Me?

If you can’t produce accessible websites, you won’t be able to work for government customers. State and federal law require those sites to be accessible to the disabled. And retailers whose websites are inaccessible have found themselves the targets of lawsuits based on equal access laws. But those aren’t the only reasons you should know how to make a site accessible. Accessible websites work better for everybody.

In this whirlwind introduction to accessibility and Drupal, you’ll learn how to recognize and avoid common obstacles to accessibility. We will also review a few features in Drupal 7 and new modules that can help you produce accessible sites. You might even find an opportunity to make a big difference in Drupal’s accessibility with a little work on one or more of these modules.
