Hi everyone,

I have been drafting a chapter on the accessibility of diagrams for a forthcoming book by Clive Richards (working title "Diagrammatics") that has various other chapters on different "mainstream" aspects of diagram design.

I could think of no better way of vetting my draft than posting a link to this forum:

I have organised the best practices into three parts:

- requirements of low vision users
- requriements of blind users
- requiremenhts of people with cognitive and learning disabilities

For each o these groups, I have compiled a design checklist to address the requirements.

You would do me a great favour if you could look at the draft and comment (here, or in the comments section below the draft).

Many thanks in advance!
Detlev Fischer
