Seven Accessibility Mistakes (Part 1) (31 Jan 2006)
A typical scenario: The marketing department comes up with some text that is totally inaccessible because it depends on the imagery that goes with it (probably taken from an ad campaign in another medium like print or TV). The project manager hands this text over to you. You explain the issues and he tells you that this is what marketing really, really wants and asks you how he should deal with the issue. You explain it to him and he forgets this or that small detail when reporting back to marketing. You play a childish “telephone” game, and end up spending a lot of time reiterating the obvious and going nowhere fast.
