Accessibility for Writing Websites and Why It Helps You as a Writer


I’m doing a guest post over on Jami Gold’s blog today on making your website accessible to disabled readers.

When I was growing up, it was common for my father to ask me to check the color of the bands on a resistor.  He was colorblind and couldn’t tell what the colors were.  I always think of my father when I work on my writing site, and now I also think about a writer in my critique group who is blind.  I’m not an expert in accessibility, but I have built sites with accessibility in mind.  Frankly, my first thought was “Why not?” and my second thought was, “Why exclude potential readers?” Read the rest on Jami Gold’s blog!
