some commonly held beliefs about web accessibility are incorrect. Early this year, Ian Pouncey posted a few other Web accessibility myths.
Here is a quick roundup of the myths from these two articles.
From Accessibility myths and misconceptions:
* Accessibility is just for blind people
* Accessible websites are ugly and boring
* Accessibility is expensive and difficult
* Offering a text-only version is good enough
* Customisation and read-aloud functionality make a site accessible
From Web accessibility myths:
* Validation equals accessibility
* If it works with a screen reader it is accessible
* Sites are either accessible or inaccessible
* Content that isn’t 100% accessible shouldn’t be published
Style guides are complements to identity projects. Ranging from simple logo usage tips to full-blown corporate identity style guides, these documents are sometimes asked by clients but should always be provided by the designer, at least in their basic form.
Designing a style guide can be as simple as putting together a couple of pages of usage examples for the identity designed or as complicated as designing an entire book that covers every possible application of the identity.
