More than 1.85 million people in Ontario and 4.4 million people in Canada have a disability. This number is on the rise as our population ages. Accessibility is no longer an option – it’s a necessity. AccessAbility: A Practical Handbook of Accessible Web Design is a free resource produced by RGD, in partnership with the Government of Ontario, aimed at educating graphic design and web design professionals so that they may assist their clients (communications managers in corporations, non-profits and government) to effectively deliver web design solutions that meet Ontario’s web accessibility requirements.
A printed copy of the Handbook will be available mid-May. The Handbook is free for all, but those who are not Members of RGD will be required to pay shipping charges. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to order a hard copy.
In 2010, RGD produced a handbook on the principles of accessible graphic design as applied to printed messages, websites and physical environments. Learn more about AccessAbility: A Practical Handbook on Accessible Graphic Design and download the free PDF here.
