The site contains a short list of some of the things the developers fixed:
- All links are keyboard accessible.
- Simple, consistent layout and navigation.
- Large default text size and high color contrast.
- Looks great in high or low resolution.
- Forms are marked up for optimal accessibility.
- Code is semantic, light, and adheres to best practices in Web Standards.
I wonder if there is a niche here for accessibility-aware Web developers: find Web 2.0 sites that brush off demands for accessibility affordances and wrap them in a “cloak of accessibility” spun from their own APIs.
I think this is a really interesting idea. I wonder what other sites could benefit from such a technique?
