Go ON Gold
The event saw the launch of Go ON Gold – a new national campaign to raise awareness of the barriers faced by disabled people in accessing computers and the Internet, and to help remove those barriers.
Cookies vs accessibility
June also saw more sites roll out their solutions to the new EU legislation, requiring sites to obtain informed consent before using cookies. You can read my initial concerns here, and I hope to do a follow-up post soon. If you’ve come across a solution that damages accessibility or usability, let me know and I’ll include it.
Finally, head over to the excellent eAccess Bulletin to read more from the eAccess conference and other accessibility news.
