Content heavy and noble attempt

Accessibility for Everyone has quickly become a must read for any person involved with product development and digital delivery. It is a must Read! I stress read here because I teach from this book and feel that the audio version is not a replacement for the physical book. The book is rich with visual content that is sorely missed in the audio version. I recently had a student who has been blind from birth and found myself in the position of being a "live" alt tag describing content while teaching through the book.
That said if you have a cognitive challenge or difficulty reading then the audible pairs nicely with a pdf or physical copy of the book. In short if you are a student assigned this book please know that the audio only is not a replacement. Accessibility in UX and design is a serious matter if you are looking for shortcuts then please just look for another career.

Very well presented

This is a very thorough and well presented discussion of the why and how of including accessibility into the design of a website.
