Max Kiesler has produced another mega-list of Ajax links. This time it’s 40 Ajax accessibility tutorials and articles.
AJAX is a great tool for creating rich internet applications, however, when improperly implemented it can cause hugh accessibility issues. The good news is that most of these issues can be fixed so your websites are viewable by a much wider audience. Great resources on accessibility have been around for years, however, many web 2.0 and AJAX websites ignore all of the research that went into turning website accessibility into a movement followed by most professional web developers. Below you’ll find a list of 40 best AJAX accessibility tutorials and articles that I have found on the web in the last year.
With Max’s permission (and following our respective CC licenses), I’ve been wikifying his links at AjaxPatterns.org, so you can add your own resources too. Here’s the wiki version of the Accessibility links and list of all links pages.
Update: EBA have been researching this topic too and just released a podcast on Ajax Accessibility.
