Where Do We Go From Here? Building National Consensus

In 2002, world-renowned usability expert Jakob Nielsen served as the National Chair of the AIR replication effort. In speaking about his commitment to the program, Nielsen noted:

Regulations alone won’t solve the problem. The public and Web designers need to develop awareness of the problems facing users with disabilities. The sad thing is that most of these issues, such as text size and clear pictures, are fairly simple to fix once you realize you’re designing for this audience. The AIR program has been shown to be a very effective means of raising awareness at the grassroots level in a competitive context that is enjoyable and that produces good results. [5]
