Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

The Royal National Institute of the Blind (RNIB) in the UK has launched a set of new accessibility information pages on its site today. The Web Access Centre was developed with the support of Standard Life who also support the RNIB’s ‘See It Right’ campaign. Sections in the site include:

In addition, the RNIB are going to be delivering a number of web access seminars across the UK during October and November.

It’s good to see the addition of these pages on the RNIB‘s site, and hopefully it will mean even more people will learn more about the topic. However, it should be noted that the RNIB did come in for some criticism when it redesigned its site a little while back, leaving many people in the accessibility community less than impressed (including Simon Willison, Tom Gilder, and myself). Let’s hope that people read the advice on these pages rather than looking at the source code behind them (“Do as we say, not as we do”).
