#BS8878 Accessible web, all next week on this blog

December 3, 2010

December 3rd is the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities. http://www.un.org/disabilities/default.asp?id=1540 and it’s a good starting point for a review of web accessibility.Next week I’m going to be looking in detail at the new standard from BSI, BS8878, which updates PAS78: Good Practice Guide in Commissioning Accessible websites.

It covers the process of making web products accessible, rather than getting hung up on technical issues which are dealt with fully elsewhere. 

There are a number of events throughout next week around the launch, including a free morning event in London on the 7th, with Jonathan Hassell who chaired the BSI IST45 committee.
The London event is now full, but there may be space at the free webinar from AbilityNet <a href="https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/763164576.
https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/763164576.<br /> Follow the action using twitter hashtag #BS8878.
