A Tool for Analysis of Web Sites' Accessibility to Users with Disabilities

The Americans with Disabilities Act promotes a view in which disability is, in part, associated with ill-considered design and design processes. As a result, discovering and implementing alternative design strategies should be a priority.

 Below is a checklist to assist you in creating web pages accessible to the widest possible readership. This checklist has been adapted by Doug Blandy from Vanderheiden, G. C., Chishom, W. A., & Ewers, N. (1996), Design of HTML Pages to Increase their Accessibility to Users with Disabilities <http://www.trace.wisc.edu/text/guidelns/htmlgide/ htmlfull.html> and assignments submitted by Richard Bear and Ann-Marie Bilderback, AAD 451/551 Art and Community Services, Program in Arts and Administration, School of Architecture and Allied Arts, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR, Winter, 1997.
