It occurred to me recently that I spend a lot of time writing about what modifications I need, because those are the ones that I understand. I sit down to type about how people could help make my life easier, often to the exclusion of other helpful modifications. I sit around and thing about what technical modifications would help me the most (beyond restoring my sight to its former glory), and write about them.
The problem is that I experience a bit of tunnel vision (pun totally intended) when it comes to digital accommodations. The UserWay widget is a great example, there are so many accessibility modifications that I had not considered until someone brought it up. Trying to consider what other people might need is a bit like having a sighted person user test a website to find concerns that a visually impaired person might have; they’re going to miss some crucial things.
Help Me Out!
If you’ve ever thought, “I really wish this accessibility modification existed…” or “why does no one write about this great accommodation?” let me know! Covering all aspects of accessibility is important in order to make a convincing case for digital accessibility beyond just telling people that WCAG 2.0 rules say they have to do it.
So this is your time to shine, please let me know what aspects of accessibility you think need to be addressed. Expanding the blog to include more angles and perspectives on the issue will increase the chances of getting a more accessible internet, which really is the goal of all of this. Let me know what you think in the comments below or if you’re not up for the public stage feel free to send us an email with your thoughts. Your ideas and contributions are very much appreciated!
