If fear of lawsuits, government mandates, and human-rights complaints is driving you to make your Website more accessible, you're doing the right thing for the wrong reason. Ask yourself if it makes sense to ignore a substantial portion of your potential audience. Why turn away visitors who may be blind, deaf, or otherwise disabled?

Building Accessible Websites teaches how and why to use Web accessibility techniques, with an emphasis on phased accessibility that scales to the needs of small, medium, and large budgets. Whether you're an individual developer running a hobby site or the head of a large corporate Web team, Building Accessible Websites shows you affordable, technically manageable ways to make a Website accessible to people with disabilities.

Written by Joe Clark - whom the Atlantic Monthly called "the king of closed captions" - this book will cause you to rethink everything you thought you knew about accessibility. It debunks myths, clarifies regulations, and presents sound strategies for tackling this important subject. Far from advocating dull text-only Web pages, Building Accessible Websites considers good visual design and strong content just as necessary and important as accessibility itself.
