Or if you want all the basics, the differences between Euro and US
standards, and pretty graphics, read my brochure:

>> Hi everyone,

>>

>> I know some of you are more up to date than I am on web accessibility

>> stuff. The IGDA is moving towards a web 2.0 set of tools for their entire

>> site, including our SIG site (which is why updating the site has been on

>> hold, amongst other life crises).

>>

>> Can someone point me to a VERY easy to follow and understand set of web

>> accessibility requirements (ie, not the stuff that requires reading 900

>> pages of very nitpicky stuff but more of a "ok THESE are the top things

>> you need to know" guide)? I've been asked by the IGDA for help in making

>> sure our own resources, as well as the rest of the IGDA resources, are

>> accessible as they move to this new system. The IGDA will then pass the

>> web accessibility info to their dev team to implement.

>>

>> Thanks everyone!

>> Michelle

>> things inside themselves, as well as
