Web accessibility for people with disabilities has certainly advanced in recent years, yet many believe that the gap between innovation and accessibility is widening. Is it time to rethink our approach to web accessibility? Is the traditional approach of following accessibility principles and guidelines optimal with web content and applications that are increasingly dynamic and rich? How can web accessibility be more mainstream and less stuffy and boring? This panel will investigate the current effectiveness of web accessibility, discuss whether a new game plan is necessary, and present how web accessibility advocates can greatly improve their efforts and enjoyment in making the web a better, more accessible place for everyone.
