Subject Documenting Cocoon accessibility
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2001 17:43:47 GMT
Good morning folks:

A couple things that have been bugging me:

* I've tried reading the documentation using a screen reader and images and
links are not clear enough so that I can know where they are taking me to.
As part of my job I'm in charge of evaluating all possible technologies for
accessibility and as far as documentation goes I'm not sure if I can
recommend it 

* I'm looking at the DTD to see if it's possible to add accessibility
attributes like title for the links and elements such as longdesc or the
ability to add links with descriptive text. In the attached dif file I've
added longer alt tags but I'm not sure if that's the correct way to do it.

* Somewhere in the docs we should provide some links to accessibility tools
and validators for people who are working with Cocoon. Maybe something to be
put in the site?

Paradoxically, a refusal to 'put a monetary value on life' means that
life is often undervalued.
