Where to start

Let's start with the wonderful physical guidelines and digital education (WCAG) that champion those needing access to web content and physical locations.

 

Without proper design, an experience can quickly become confusing and dysfunctional. That's why coders, web designers, architects and companies need to prepare and implement the best standards.

 

That is why you will see all of the desktop version text of this site on the left to accommodate for screen magnifiers. We also have live text fonts for screen readers to announce what the type is saying. As well as hyperlinks to make skimming a shortcut for shorter attention spans.

 

Ever had a bad experience? Check your countries government site to find where to submit a complaint. A few Human Rights resources are located on our Open Source Document. Companies have an obligation to receive, read, respond and even fix what is broken on their site. Try to reach out first and contact.

Laws and guidelines

Earth

Every country has different building and web page accessibility resources. Thousands upon thousands of different suggestions and regulations. So how do businesses, nonprofits and governments know how to improve their spaces to enable others?

To find each country’s rules, w3.org has concise information including on The European Union Accessibility Act, Canadian Accessibility Act, Australian Disability Discrimination Act and Spain's extensive laws.

 

These guidelines are the key to innovating spaces for the better of everyone. Our favorite is the United Nations disability rights.

We don’t expect you to read every act and rule. For a quick reference the Job Accommodation Network has a great list of A to Z disabilities and accommodations.

But what does accessibility and disability inclusion really look like?

And so much more...

 

This is just the beginning of our mission to find accessibility resources scattered across the web. Ready to help? Contact us with an idea or link.
