Guild of Accessible Web Designers

My membership of The Guild of Accessible Web Designers (GAWDS) was accepted today. I wanted to join GAWDS because it seems like a great idea at a time when many people are confused and concerned about accessibility – particularly in terms of accessibility legislation – and there is an awful lot of spurious advice flying around.

If GAWDS can fulfil the aims of its manifesto then it will fill a growing need that I have experienced for a coherent, central place where designers can learn about best practices for web accessibility and potential clients can source designers and developers knowing that they can actually deliver the accessible site or application that they require.

Yes!!! I immediately thought of you when I saw that…and meant to forward it but it got lost in all the links on my messy desktop.

So very very appropriate!
