Accessibility Checking

After the markup was written, a quick check from Bobby confirmed that it passed most major accessibility checkpoints. A few quick changes were needed before launch to fix the few glitches that Bobby noticed. A link labeled “AAA” was added to the footer of the Zen Garden to signify that accessibility had been taken care of.

Or had it? It turns out that Bobby is not the final word when it comes to accessibility. If you familiarize yourself with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines published by the W3C (see “Better Accessibility” earlier in this chapter you’ll soon realize there are guidelines that Bobby simply can’t check. Checkpoint 2.1, for example, states that all information conveyed through color needs to be available to the viewer without color as well—software like Bobby has no way of distinguishing this, especially if the information and color are embedded in an image.
