How to code braille-friendly web sites?
I was wondering how to code braille-friendly web sites?
I did a string search for WD and I got no threads that were about 'how to make a web site that is braille-screen friendly'.
So, how do you code a braille-friendly web site?
Well, some people include alternate style sheets for braille users. Basically, I'd say, don't use tables because they don't linearize correctly. Use a pure CSS layout. Put your content first, and your navigation afterwards. Take a look at it in a non-graphical browser, like Lynx, which will give you a pretty good idea how a screen read will read it. And of course remember to include alternative text for all graphical elements, which you should be doing anyway because it's a W3C recommendation and necessary for valid HTML.
If you don't have lynx, this Lynx Viewer comes in quite handy.
Follow Section 508 and WAI guidelines, and you'll be all set for all users.
