Derek Featherstone and WD06 and Accessibility

I really enjoyed Derek Featherstone’s talk. A powerhouse of energy, this guy has a mission to make websites usable to disabled people. One website at a time. Accessibility Roolz. I’m not a coder or a designer or anything so I only went to the overview presentation but it was really really interesting.

I loved the fact Derek get’s his inspiration from his environment. His stories of cross walk signs and signals were enlightening and educational. I’ve done the same thing wandering around my neighbourhood, associating certain real life things with online communities.

The logo above takes you to caughtya.org. It’s an online community where the neighbourhood real life community takes fotos cars parked illegally in Disabled spots. They list the number plates etc. Power to the People!

  1. Hello,

    Thanks for making a reference to our website, Caughtya.org

    I’m glad you enjoyed the presentation about web accessibility, as it is an important issue. It is worth nothing that Caughtya.org is accessible to people with disabilities and meets most of WCAG AAA 🙂

  2. RE website accessibility criteria: Good fer you!

    And I really DO think your website is a neat idea. Good luck with it all! 🙂
