Get Web Accessibility News First

March 5, 2017

Subscribe to the Webdesign Update Newsletter and receive accessibility information first in each issue.

Few books, courses, or publications integrate accessibility or teach it from the onset. If it is considered at all, it usually ends up as an afterthought that many don't get around to reading or studying. The Webdesign Update Newsletter takes a more inclusive approach. Accessibility is paramount rather than being relegated to an optional afterthought. It leads they way and is fused whenever possible into related topics.

What is the Web Design Update Newsletter?

Web Design Update is a plain text email digest dedicated to disseminating news and information about web design and development with emphasis on accessibility, elements of the user experience, and more. Topics span the alphabet from "Accessibility" to "XML." References include recent articles by knowledgeable authors, as well as the expected links to events and resources. The newsletter typically goes out once a week as an adjunct to the the Web Design Reference site. It is a free service provided by the ITSS Web Team.

Goals

The Web Design Update strives to:

  • Impart news and information on making web sites accessible, obtainable and functional to the largest possible audience.
  • Provide topical news and information for designing web sites that are effective, efficient, engaging, error tolerant and easy to learn.
  • Distribute pertinent news and information of web design and development theory and methods.
