Web Accessibility Initiative, Accessible Rich Internet Applications – WAI-ARIA


I thought it was appropriate to use this photograph of two older women in a dark alley, created by scaffolding on the York Street side of the Queen Victoria Building, to accompany this article on the Internet accessibility change I made to my website.

Not everyone who surfs the net has perfect eyesight of mobility. Many people have to use specially created software to get advantage of the Internet. Majority of the pages are not really friendly to them. There are many reasons why a web page may or may not be suitable for people with special needs but in the end it all comes down to structure, markup, readability and support for special browsers and readers.
