The Revolution usability report
- Improving usability for groups with special requirements can benefit all users. And, of course, it benefits brands.
- The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) estimates that 10 per cent of the population of any country has some kind of disability and it promotes the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), which is a set of standards for sites around the world. Making a web site accessible should not be a dreaded chore; it is in the interest of everyone, from the site owner to the user. Accessibility is simply about good design principles and it doesn't necessarily involve having to make a separate large-print version of your homepage.
All of this is fine, but personally I found the text on the Revolution site a bit difficult to read and you could not even control the font size as it was fixed using CSS. Maybe they should look into it now that they've published the report.
