A Shaw start
Today marks the start of the Shaw Trust web accessibility audit of ClacksWeb , and is hopefully the first step on the way to Shaw Trust Accreditation for the site.
For those of you who aren't aware of the Trust and its web accessibility services, they offer perhaps the most comprehensive pan-disability audit and accreditation scheme available in the UK (and possibly further afield). As well as automated tests, the Trust uses a panel of real users, with a range of disabilities.
There's a lot more information on the Shaw Trust website , and I'll be recording my experiences of the process on this site as we progress. Although I'm experiencing some high anxiety at the moment (what will they find wrong with the site?!) it's an exciting prospect to have quality feedback from real users, and going through the process can only help to improve the site.
