Your information on the teitac website is most interesting and useful.
Hopefully, many web designers access this information. My input:
several articles and postings on this site indicate issues relevant to
cognitive disabilities and web accessibility are not of utmost importance.
I strongly disagree! As a survivor of a massive cerebral hemorrhage and,
yet, an 18-year successful I.T. Specialist for the federal government, I
know first-hand the importance of addressing such issues! In setting
policy related to this topic, I would suggest designers and policy-makers
to refer to:
Addressing such concerns assists not only those with cognitive
impairments, but also our aging population, and ... for all users!
