As some people may already know, the ePractice.eu portal will be relaunched next year. Design and development work for the relaunch is already underway. It will not only bring more features for the user community, but also a new design and layout. One focus of the relaunch will be on the accessibility of the portal, i.e. on improving the way people with disabilities can interact with the site, the community and the content.
My company, empirica, is responsible for the accessibility support to the developers and designers of the ePractice.eu team. Over the past years we have been lucky enough to gather an ever increasing amount of experience with the issue of web accessibility. This experience tells us one thing for sure: ask the users! And this is what we want to do with the newly formed "ePractice.eu Accessible" community.
We would like to cordially invite the ePractice.eu users - and in particular those with disabilities - to get in touch with us and with each other, to discuss how the accessibility of the site can be improved. In a first step we are above all interested in your experiences with the site as it is today. We know that there are some issues with accessibility right now but would like to hear from you: How accessible is the portal for you? Do you have trouble, e.g. when using a screen-reader or surfing with the keyboard, or when simply surfing with your browser? Are there areas of the site that you like/dislike especially?
Looking forward to your replies.
