Universal Design for Web Applications: Web Applications That Reach Everyoneby Wendy Chisholm
Synopses & Reviews
Universal Design for Web Applications teaches you how to build websites that are more accessible to people with disabilities and explains why doing so is good business. It takes more work up front, but the potential payoff is huge — especially when mobile users need to access your sites.
Universal Design for Web Applications provides you with a roadmap to help you design easy-to-maintain web applications that benefit a larger audience.
Book News Annotation:
It looks terrible on my iPhone, though" "He never got the invitation - the app didn't like his browser." "Why is this site so hard to read?" You don't want to hear those complaints, and you definitely don't want management to hear them. Fortunately, you don't have to hear them, if you design your web site or application right from the outset. While it does take some extra preparation and care, doing it right from the outset can save costs and make new friends for your site in the long run. (Even fixing your site can stanch ongoing costs.)
