The Accessibility Not-Checklist
Intopia have released the beta version of their Accessibility Not-Checklist – a guide to help you check you haven’t missed anything when you’re creating accessible web content. Even if you’re just getting started with accessibility, or you’re not the content publisher or web developer, or you don’t really understand the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), this is still a seriously handy tool.
You can use it to double-check elements of plain language and good content structure, or to help explain to the content publisher how you need that content to work for readers.
