Horton and Quesenbery to tackle Web Accessibility


Accessibility is one of those issues that seems to lurk in the back of many a designer’s mind. Can’t ignore it, especially as it becomes an increasingly frightening Legal Thing. But don’t want to deal with it; after all, it’ll screw up the design, right?

Not right. You can have a design that’s both accessible and enjoyable if you follow universal design principles. That’s what Universal Design for Web Accessibility: Solutions for barrier-free user experiences, the newest Rosenfeld Media book-in-progress, will teach you. Written by Sarah Horton, co-author of the Web Style Guide, and Whitney Quesenbery, co-author of our own Storytelling for User Experience, Universal Design for Web Accessibility will provide you with the practical principles and examples you’ll need to create sites that everyone can use.

We’re thrilled to be working with Sarah and, for a second time, Whitney. And we’re looking forward to their book coming out in 2012, a year which promises a lot of new Rosenfeld Media titles.
