Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Recently, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 my friend Mike Gifford wrote a great article about Accessibility Tips for Management. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00  In it, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 he writes:

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Without having specialized technical knowledge tied to accessibility, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 do managers have the skills required to assess if their sites are accessible?  In my experience most managers lack the resources to do any accessibility reviews of their sites and so fall back at best reviewing a vendor’s accessibility statement.

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Mike makes a very important point here, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 that we in the Accessibility community need to do a better job of providing information in a broader way and for a more inclusive audience. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 So in the spirit of moving away from technical information about accessibility, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 I’d like to provide something of a response or a compliment to Mike’s article, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 looking at the answer to the question “What is the cost of accessibility?”

Accessibility Is Cheap

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 CMS'esThe good news about web accessibility is that there are a number of things that limit its cost. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Mike’s article lists a number of free, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 automated tools to provide accessibility testing of websites – auditing your website and comparing it to an accessibility checklist. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 In addition to these tools, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 web development best practices can deliver accessibility wins and they don’t cost anything to use, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 and there are entire organizations dedicated to helping your project identify and implement these types of practices, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 such as the Web Standards Group. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00  Examples of these practices, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 to share with your developers, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 include separating content from display, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 using semantic code – such as avoiding the use of tables for layout, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 and using options such as “alt” tags . Aceon 4mg pills $382.00  No only will these practices improve your accessibility, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 but it will also improve your website’s code quality and Search Engine Optimization. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Don’t forget, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Google is basically a screen reader; what is good for web accessibility is usually good for search engines as well.

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Using Content Management System tools such as WordPress or Drupal can provide significant support for web accessibility. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 By automating code generation and providing workflow elements such as asking for an alt tag each time an image is uploaded to the website, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 CMS tools can take on much of the heavy lifting for content developers, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 allowing them to focus on great content and not getting bogged down in the minutia of accessibility coding. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Using a CMS provides many other benefits, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 making websites less expensive to maintain and easier to manage. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Keeping in mind the opportunities to support accessibility when selecting a CMS tool is an important accessibility strategy for management.

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 The most significant way these practices make accessibility cheap is because they “bake in” accessibility into the foundation of all your web projects. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Ensuring accessibility is a core value of your organization and your developers, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 which means planning for accessibility and measuring for accessibility, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 is essential to manage the cost of accessibility.

Accessibility is Expensive

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Woodworking ToolsUltimately web accessibility is not about validation checklists. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Checklists don’t have experiences; People have experiences. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 This doesn’t mean that checklist tools aren’t useful – they are; I use them in every web development project I work on. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 However, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 checklists can provide a false positive – that is to say, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 just because a website passes a checklist, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 it doesn’t mean the site is accessible. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 In fact, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 even if a website can demonstrate that it meets every requirement set out by every accessibility standard, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 it might still not be accessible, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 because if someone can’t access the content…then the site isn’t accessible. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 This makes accessibility a very demanding element of web development and design.

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Building accessibility expertise in your team is not simple, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 fast or cheap. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Web develop and design have matured from a task to give as a side-task to a sysadmin or programmer into full, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 professional disciplines. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Building professional websites is now a craft and one of the skills of crafting a website is accessibility, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 something which wasn’t even a consideration in the early days of the web. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Indeed, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 accessibility itself is discipline rich enough to fill entire books, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 conferences and careers. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 This doesn’t mean everyone who builds your website needs to be an accessibility expert. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 However, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 proven accessibility expertise is a valuable skill and takes time and energy to cultivate. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 And, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 as recommended by Mike, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 it may make sense for you to engage an external accessibility consultant, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 such as Ottawa based Further Ahead.

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 The most common way accessibility is expensive is when it is a project afterthought. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Much like security or information architecture, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 accessibility is a fundamental part of a high-quality, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 successful website. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 As work on the website progresses, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 it will become progressively more and more expensive to include effective and thorough accessibility. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Building the value of and expertise in accessibility in your team, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 through training, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 hiring and engaging consultants when necessary, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 all work to help manage the cost of accessibility.

Planning for the Cost of Accessibility

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Bill Graham of Wind River, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 a subsidiary of Intel, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 writes this about the cost of fixing bugs:

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 We intuitively know that defects in the field are much more expensive than those found in development. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 In fact, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 the difference is bigger than you think. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 If you find a bug in-house you save orders of magnitude in time and money…Take a look at this diagram (from www.agitar.com). Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Cost to fix bugs rises exponentially as you move down the development timeline. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 After you’re shipping your product, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 the cost per defect has increased 640 times!

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 What if we consider accessibility problems in our websites the same as bugs in our software? If we take this perspective, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 then we see accessibility problems as something that is a requirement to fix. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Data on the cost of fixing bugs shows us the key variable in managing these costs is doing this work as early in the project as possible. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 The later in the project a bug is identified, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 that is to say an accessibility problem is identified, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 the more expensive it will be to fix it. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Now, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 accessibility fixes may not follow this exact pattern – I’m not saying the cost per defect for accessibility issues is 640 times higher after you ship a website. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 But I do think the general principle we see here holds true for accessibility issues. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 It is tempting to thing of functional bugs as something different from accessibility bugs, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 but keep in mind that if someone on your website can’t access a function, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 it’s no different than that function being broken.

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 To plan for the cost of accessibility in web project, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 it is critical to include accessibility in the project plan from the very beginning.

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 To plan for the cost of accessibility as a competency on your team, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 it is critical to include it in your talent development and retention strategies. With legislation such as ADA in the US, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 AODA in Ontario and other laws in other jurisdictions, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 it is clear that the legal requirements for accessibility are not going anywhere and will become more strict over time. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 Adding the accessibility dimension of expertise to your organization will take investment, aceon 4mg pills $382.00 commitment and time.

Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 I hope this article provides a useful and accessible summary of some of the key issues about the cost web accessibility for managers. Aceon 4mg pills $382.00 What insights do you have? What are the most important things managers need to consider when costing web accessibility?

  1. Thanks so much for spinning off from the initial contradictions of Accessibility is Simple & Accessibility is Complicated. You brought up lots of good points about how organizations should plan to include accessibility talent on web teams.

    I’d also suggest that since the rate of change is so fast in this area, that organizations need to also invest in keeping these staff informed. Going to conferences like http://www.accessconf.ca will really expand peoples understandings & give them additional resources to work from.

    I also think that the price of accessibility can be brought down by participating in open source projects like Drupal & WordPress and being vocal about accessibility issues. Simply raising awareness to developers about best practices – like those identified in http://hanshillen.github.com/aegisdemo/ – can go a long way to seeing that they are adopted.
