Just recently, I came across a retweet Button that I really like. It’s called TweetMeme. I like this because it is one of those third-party components that can still maintain the accessibility of your site.
Oftentimes, when you create a totally accessible site, and you want to incorporate a third-party component, plug-in, or widget, and that component is not accessible, then all of a sudden, you have defeated the purpose of working hard to make your site accessible.
When you create a web page, it is not enough to write in a particular language. It is also important to programmatically define the language you are using.
We all want our site to be at its best. That’s why we spend days and even months in trying to figure out the most visually appealing design for our web pages.
But apart from layout and design, the correctness of your pages’ codes is another key factor to consider. So to ensure that the codes you put in your pages are all correct, you need to dedicate a part of your time for page validation.
Tables are one of the most common elements you would see in websites. If you need to display information in rows and columns, creating a table is your first and oftentimes only option. Fortunately, making a table is generally easy: you just enter the data, and indicate which are the rows and which are the columns.
But despite of the simplicity of this element, tables play a crucial role in helping users understand the contents of a web page. Persons with disabilities are no exception to this fact. It is therefore important for you to know how to make tables accessible for all types of users.
Here, I will show you how to create accessible tables.
