WebAIM is excited that eBay has recently launched a set of enhancements to its web site that makes the buying and selling experience more accessible. Users can list, search, navigate, select, and purchase an item on the eBay web site with greater ease. In April and May, WebAIM staff traveled to eBay’s corporate headquarters in San Jose to provide customized training to their web site developers, quality assurance engineers, designers, and product managers. We had a great experience in training the teams, and meeting with the eBay accessibility core team that coordinates the accessibility initiatives across the company.
eBay’s company-wide accessibility training program has been updated to address web accessibility. We are enthused by this momentum and are pleased to see more web sites support the needs of individuals with disabilities.
We applaud eBay for their strong commitment to web accessibility and for the opportunity WebAIM has had to provide training resources to support their accessibility initiative.
