A while ago I wrote an article encouraging anyone commissioning a website to get hold of a publication by the Disability Rights Commission. ‘PAS 78: A Guide To Good Practice In Commissioning Accessible Websites’ is a comprehensive guide for anyone commissioning a website on what to look for and how to achieve compliance with the necessary laws.The great news is that this document is now free. It can be downloaded from the DRC website. I thoroughly recommend that anyone involved in the industry should read this whether they are commissioning or developing websites.
Have an update or suggestion for this article? You can edit it here and send me a pull request.
