My raw notes from this wonderful session on accessibility. The more thoughtful recap will come later.

41 million, over 15% have accessibility issues
disability folks find only 40% sites found easy to use
non-disabled 7 of 10 sites

1 - all content is perceivable
2 – operable or navigable by multiple devices
3 – understandable (content)
4 – robust

how to improve the posts to accessibility

1 - provide text alt for all images
2 - expand acronyms the first time they are used
3 – make hyperlinks distinct and distinguishable
