Description:

The 508 handbook is written for the developer or designer who wants to make accessible websites, but doesn't know where to begin. The reader will not only be introduced to the various audiences covered under 508 and their limitations and assistive technologies, but be given practical advice on how to make a website for them, while not compromising the overall design. Practical examples are provided, as well as heuristics to guide them during the development of completely new technologies.

Katie Cunningham is a Python and Django developer for Cox Media Group. While she had always had an interest in programming, it didn’t turn into a career until she started to work at NASA. There, she slowly transitioned from gathering requirements to developing full time, advocating the use of more open source in the government sector. It was at NASA that she gained an interest in 508 compliance. At first, she was only interested in getting her applications through QA faster. Over time, however, she gained a passion for a web that was easy for everyone to use. Now in the private sector, she is championing compliance even for websites that don’t require it by law.
