Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

Joe Clark, accessibility guru and author of the excellent Building Accessible Websites, has pointed me to ‘Best practices in online captioning.’ It’s 21 chapters based on a government-funded university project, but don’t let that fool you ;-): it’s by far the most comprehensive work I’ve seen on online captioning.

I find myself doing more and more projects that call for advanced multimedia: audio, Flash, video and the like, as opposed to the more ordinary text + graphics. At the same time, many of my employer’s clients are either in the financial industry or serve various government institutions — the sorts of clients for whom meeting accessiblity guidelines are a matter of law. Joe’s work in this area will be a tremendous resource for me in the months to come.

Keep ‘em coming, Joe!
