Thoughts to chew on…

Accessibility is critical, and should be treated as such or you aren’t communicating to an entire community.  It’s also just the right thing to do.  And I’ve seen one infographic after another out on the web that is not accessible.  I get it…  With so much visual information and stats packed into one image, it’s a lot of effort to ensure the image has a well-formed title and expresses all the same content and messages in a long description.  But is it really?  If digital practices are put in place form start to finish, it would not be difficult at all.  In fact, it would be hardly noticeable once the practice is incorporated into the process.
