December Weblog

December 31, 2003

It's been a busy holiday season for me but not for some people. Christopher Phillips had time to start a new blog about accessibility and distance education. This is an underrepresented topic, and I'm happy to see a site devoted to it. Thanks for letting me know about it, Christopher.

Continuing on the education and accessibility theme, Design Science was recently awarded a grant to find ways to make mathematical Web content more accessible. They hope to convince assistive technology manufacturers to better support MathML. If only mainstream browsers had better, native support for MathML.

Have a Happy New Year!

The Guild of Accessible Web Designers is accepting new members. Current members hail from a variety of nations. The Guild's brief manifesto defines their vision and purpose. In short, they advocate accessible Web design and are business oriented. Their Web site might not be impressive now, but they will soon start a redesign contest and will be adding new content and resources. I'm a current member, and I believe this organization has great potential.
