Presumably this will be to encourage step by step instructions?

Re: Web Accessibility - New draft British Standard

Has anybody tried to read it?  What a load of tosh Roll eyes
It's much more focused on how to set up boxes to tick to ensure that you can justify that your development is compliant as far as I can see?  The document it is planned to replace (PAS7Cool  was quite good and well presented.   
The web site version could well take a few notes from their own document in making it presentable to even people with normal eyesight, let alone those with visual problems.   I tried to read and comment, but gave up after about 4 pages:  Small (VERY SMALL) font,  failing navigation links and no downloadable PDF.  I'll wait Crazy

I went to read it but resented the fact I had to sign up to look at it.

That's exactly why I didn't bother - I couldn't be bothered to register - just to browse.

Re: Web Accessibility - New draft British Standard

I think you aught to register and look at the document to see just how bad it is!  It is an interest area of mine and I genuinely wanted to see the latest status of thinking.
I have made a few recorded comments. But without making a lot of effort it is difficult to see how anyone will bother reading it all Crazy
