Re: [BCAB] Web Design advice Mobeen Iqbal 22 Nov 2012 22:54 GMT

Hi Susan.

I have built websites for people in the past, and am currently the
manager and web developer of the Vinux project. Take a look at our new
site, built with drupal 6 mainly the extra themes offered. all the
themes have different contrast settings, and the black and white one is
sometimes more accessible with screen readers though all 3 work fine.
the site's still in testing stages. If you'd like more information,
please don't hesitate to reply to me either on or off list. If you use a
content management system with accessible templates, you may find that's
easier and meets more accessibility guidelines than if someone codes for
you manually. I'm also coding a similar site for the Blind Voice UK
organisation based in yarm. they also wanted an accessible site and
found it more convenient to pay me as i would both build and conduct
testing for them, as well as provide support and hosting. take a look at
the following link anyway and let me know what you think.

all the best,

Mo.

> Hi, I am looking for some advice from those of you who understand web design and implimenting accessibility/usability from the start. I am involved with a small group who have just secured funding to set up a website and we want to make sure it is accessible and more importantly useable from a disabled persons point of view, especially using screen readers and magnification. Is there anything in particular we should be a, asking for and b, looking for, when dealing with web designers. Thanks Susan Jones
