Found! Web technologies for users

Posted on 15 July, 2009. Filed under: Web sites | Tags: , , |

I found Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)!

It looks like a set of recommendations to help web-creators to improve web sites in users’ eyes.

What’s important for me is font size. My eyes are weak. I see many beautiful web sites that have small fonts. At least too small for me. It’s a shame that web designers seem to have forgotten reader convenience. I even think if web designers with healthy & young eyes think all the web viewers have the same eyes as them.

In the past I talked about the importance of font size to some web designers. None understood my point. “I don’t mind as resolution of my screen is at professional level”, or just “Really?”. If the problem is not technical, font size may not attract engineers’ attention.

This is where I see a gap between web users and IT creators.

WAI  is right to have hit a stress point of web users. It does more than that. It provides solutions, proposals for improvements.

W3C consortium, a creator of WAI, has got one more vote by me.
