About Accessify

Accessify.com started life late 2002 as a need to pull together a number of disparate tools that Ian Lloyd had created, tools which filled in the gaps that HTML authoring packages had at the time. These formed the core of the site - the tools and wizards - and with a news update, Accessify was born.

Since that time, many of the web authoring tools (e.g. Dreamweaver) have improved their accessibility support, making the tools and wizards on this site less critical, but these tools can still save developers time (for example, the list-o-matic, skipnav builder and markup maker tools). So, what new tools would be useful to have on this site? Perhaps some ARIA tools? Let us know what you think.

The site underwent a complete redesign and rebuild in 2008, adding a new screencasts section. There's also a wiki on the way (link to follow) and new tools will appear as and when the ideas come up. If you have an idea for something on this site, please use the contact form.

You could also read the not-very-legalese legal page, or read the accessibility statement to find out how this site works, what it conforms to and so on. Failing that, just ask using the contact form.

It would not have been possible without the help of ...

While it's pretty much a one-man band affair now, Accessify has had some help in the past, notably from Patrick Lauke, as well as a few others who've made an appearance or two on the blog.
