    on Oct 13, 2012 in About this Site Blogging

    on Mar 26, 2011 in Accessibility iPad HTML Web Design
    I think iPad apps like Flipboard may turn out to be one of the best things to happen to accessibility in quite a while. Not because they are accessibility tools themselves, because they are not. No, this is a bonus for accessibility because it will l...

    BlogDesk is a fairly nice desktop blogging client. In simpler terms it's a piece of software that lets you post to your blog from your desktop without using the web browser. This allows for some added features over a lot of blogging platforms. It sup...

    on Sep 23, 2010 in Accessibility CSS
