ADA

Photo of Dr. ConspiracyI confess that I have not been very mindful of persons with disabilities in the design and content of this web site. There are many instances where it is not Section 508 compliant. I have gone back to the past few articles and added alternate text to images, and I may do that to more articles over time. Even though I am not required to implement the Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines for this web site, I do want the site to be accessible and useful to those who visit.

If you have a disability, please let me know if I can do something to make the site serve you better. You can email “admin” at this web site.

As for the peculiar disability common to the Birthers, I don’t have a solution. I fear that this site will be forever inaccessible to them.

    It’s not that the site is “inaccessible.” It’s that logic and reason are inaccessible to them

    I already suggested a birtherism exclusion be added to the ADA …. did my staff not push that through?

    They’re FIRED! Disabilities and all!

    I recently started accessing your website on my iPod Touch and was delighted to find that it is formatted for small screens. Thank you! (Not an accessibility issue, but your post brought it to mind.)

    Doc,

    In a former incarnation of my current life, I shared studio space with this lady…
    http://www.knowbility.org/v/staff-detail/Sharron-Rush/3d/

    I had a custom furniture workshop in the back of an old wooden Texaco warehouse located right on the railroad tracks in East Austin, while she lived in and ran her non-profit, Knowbility, in the front. Knowbility deals specifically with web accessibility for those with disabilities.

    Early on she organized an competition (AIR-Austin) that paired up teams of Austin based web designers with local charities and non-profits which either needed websites or needed updates to existing ones. A major component in the judging of the new websites was how well they incorporated accessibility techniques into their finished product. Out of this project grew Knowbility.

    She’s a wonderful person, and if you’d like, I’d be more than happy to introduce you guys to each other. Even if you didn’t take advantage of their services directly, I’m sure she could turn you on to some resources that could help you in this…um, knowble effort of yours.

    I use a plug-in called WP-Touch to support the small screens. I think it works remarkably well.
