Hi WAI Interest Group folks,

"Just Ask: Integrating Accessibility Throughout Design" is a new book that helps developers include accessibility in designing websites, software, hardware, and consumer products. It focuses on including real people with disabilities throughout the design process, to develop effective accessibility solutions efficiently.

What's really cool is that the entire book is available *online* free, thanks to Adobe, RNIB (Royal National Institute of the Blind), Mitsue-Links, and other sponsors. The online version starts at:
* Cover page <http://www.uiaccess.com/justask/>;
* Introduction <http://www.uiaccess.com/accessucd/overview.html>;

I'd love to hear what you think about the book.

I really love reading complete online
books. When it comes to
inaccessibility in information
technology, print on paper is still
the all time worst. Thanks Shawn,
Adobe, RNIB and all for putting an
important publication in an accessible
format for everyone. Reading free
from pain and nausea is such a luxury
for some of us.
