Premier of Web Accessibility Videos

The W3C Web Accessibility Initiative has taken a major step towards promoting web accessibility through the release of a group of videos that highlight the issues users with disabilities face when the web is not designed with best practices and accessibility in mind.

Research by the Pew Research Center indicates that persons with disabilities use and access the internet at lower rates than those who do not report a disability, at least partly due to the inaccessible design of many websites. Twenty-five years after passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) many websites are still inaccessible and many web developers are not aware of the techniques for making web pages accessible.

Common obstacles to web access for persons with disabilities include uncaptioned video, poor color contrast, image-only documents, unlabeled graphics, controls and links that are not keyboard accessible and poor layout and design.

The Web Accessibility Perspectives videos demonstrate the barriers caused by inaccessible web pages both for persons with disabilities and for other users. The videos are accompanied with tips and resources for addressing and remediating these issues. To experience accessibility from the perspective of persons with disabilities and learn more about creating accessible websites view the videos and resources at https://www.w3.org/WAI/perspectives/.

Misc feedback

    I just watched your video series on web accessibility<https://www.w3.org/WAI/perspective-videos/>. It's really an outstanding series that gets everything right. I was particularly pleased to see that you included accurate and tasteful information about accessibility for people with dyslexia since I am dyslexic. I really can't think of any way you could improve these videos.
  • Oct 2017 article
    The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) describes web accessibility as “essential for some, useful for all,” with benefits for every user.
  • at [OzeWAI? conference], several people used tagline/catch phrase in presentations {Andrew, 19 May}
  • "one of the most significant things coming out of the W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) is the fantastic Web Accessibility Perspectives videos which provide a number of excellent examples of how people with disabilities use the web. In the past, it’s often been hard to find professional and specific examples of the web in action by people with disabilities and this resource has been a tremendous addition." 2016 year in Review
