Christmas is a time for all men to come together as equals, so what great timing for the The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to announce version 2.0 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
These guidelines will serve as a useful tool for web designers and developers to ensure their work is accessible, not just for people with registered disabilities, but for everyone.
We’re all getting so excited about social media, blogging, video content etc that it can be easy to lose sight of whether this content is accessible or relevant to people with everyone. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great that you’re building a community on Facebook, but did you know what a nightmare the site is to visit if you need a screen reader? Accessibility isn’t just about ticket prices and venues anymore.

Merry Christmas, everybody! See you in the New Year, I’m off to Australia for two weeks!
