Sharron Rush, of Knowbility, talks about What’s up in 2007 for accessibility and takes a look at where we’ve made progress and where we have to keep pushing for progress. One of her comments is, “YouTube, Flicker and millions of blogs upon which the users themselves generate content are the fastest growing use of the Internet. What to do about accessibility when the content is being created by millions of users who do not have the first clue about accommodating the needs of people with disabilities?”
Addendum: SXSW podcasts a new interview with Sharron Rush discussing accessibility. She talks about the benefits of accessibility. Her background as an accessibility activist is also part of the interview. And, of course, you get some previews of what will be involved in this year’s SXSW accessibility panels.
