Panel: Accessiblity (sic) Standards

Filed in: accessibility, SXSW2005, Web, Mon, Mar 14 2005 08:56 PT

The irrepressible Joe Clark liveblogged my session, so I don’t need to try to remember any of what I said. (Like everyone else, including the moderator and one co-presenter, Joe copied the misspelled panel title. Accessibility: hard to type. Not so hard to do.)

Yes, I said “validates against WCAG.” No, I didn’t mean to say that. I had blown my buffer when I said that. There is no validation against WCAG. It is, of course, a process of evaluation. I could blame everyone who has used that phrase to the extent that it is apparently burned somewhere in the back of my brain, but instead I will take the hit myself. Do as I do, not as I say.

    Yeah, I caught several of those mistypings, but not that one. Fixed.

  2. Joe Clark says:

    So are you gonna fix your headline or what?

  3. Matt May says:

    Not until SXSW reprints their materials.

    It’s funny, I think. How many people saw that session title and had the power to mention it, and failed? Must have been in Arial. 😉

    hello matt, just wanted to say thanks for linking to the david clark interview…now, if you could only get him directly involved with you and the w3 consortium (he’s in boston y’know! – and he’s a serious wordpress guru, check out his site for his own plug-in for wp 1.5)
    thanks,
    dave
