Increase Accessbility Awareness/Training

Social media sites at their core do not follow universal design practices or follow web accessibility standards in building their user interfaces.

 

Facebook recently at the CSUN conference discovered that the folks who create and maintain their user interfaces lacked accessibility awareness and/or training. The complexity of different platforms, different API's, etc. added to the list of issues.

Use current accessibility standards in all user interfaces and recommend enhancements to the standard as part of continuous improvement.
