“The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.”

Tim Berners Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web.

 

When we think about accessibility we usually think about confusing acronyms like VPAT 2.0, WCAG 2.0, Section 508 and ADA. An accessible web site, is simply one that is available to all users, with all abilities and all disabilities. These acronyms are standards to provide guidelines of various levels, to help make a web site accessible. While these guidelines are important to our business from a compliance perspective, there are human and community responsibilities which go beyond the business responsibilities.

We have an awesome product, which allows people to come together as a community to collaborate, share ideas, be productive and have fun too - people of all abilities and all disabilities.

 

I want to reach out to users of the product who rely on screen readers, assistive technologies or keyboards alone to navigate and use Jive. I want to know how we can make the product better for you. Yes, there are several automated testing tools, but these tools do little else than flag color contrast subtleties, catch w3c warnings, and highlight incorrect or misused HTML tags and ARIA Landmarks in the code. These tools give us little guidance to how users relying on assistive technologies actually uses the product.

 

We want to reach out to our accessibility community to hear and learn from you! How do you use the product, what is holding you back and how can we help you do your best work?
