The responsible, conscientious web developer wants her site as widely accessible as she can make it. Perhaps she knows enough to read the accessibility guidelines and she can address many -- even most -- of the high points.

But the developer seldom has the knowledge and experience to recognize the subtle, nuanced issues in accessibility.

I propose a group that will concern itself solely with accessibility. The group will allow:

  • Q&A about accessibility; and

  • Requests for site reviews that are mostly limited to the accessibility of site.

The group might result in better, more-accessible sites generally; and in heightened developer awareness in particular.

Pete - Have you looked at ux.stackexchange.com? Accessibility frequently comes up. That may be an interim alternative

  • @Dori - I was looking at it as consciousness contributes to the developer's effectiveness in this area. – Ray Mitchell May 7 '11 at 23:04

If you think that this isn't currently covered (or sufficiently covered) on any existing SE site or proposal, please consider creating a new proposal yourself!

For more info on how to do that, the Area 51 FAQ has a section on How do I start a new site?
