Web Accessibility Handbook by HiSoftware & Microsoft

The Web Accessibility Handbook, a guide to best practices for achieving Web accessibility.

Throughout 2008, Microsoft and HiSoftware partnered to hold a series of European Dialogues on Practical Strategies for an Accessible Web. The Dialogues focused on understanding the challenges of Web accessibility and sharing best practices to address those challenges. Participants included a wide range of individuals with practical, theoretical and/or personal experience in the Web accessibility space, including members of public sector and private sector organizations, technology vendors and NGOs. The goal throughout these dialogues was to not only understand the challenges for organization that looked to achieve Web accessibility but to closely examine some of the solutions and strategies that are already being employed by organizations to accomplish their goals. As a result of the Dialogues a “How To” guide, the Web Accessibility Handbook, was created.
