“Market forces have shown that pretty much nobody wants to hire a sarcastic gay vegan to fix their Web accessibility” – Joe Clark
It’s too bad, Joe has helped shape web accessibility and increase awareness in the design and development to accessibility concerns, solutions and techniques. He is “a longtime advocate for increased and improved accessibility.” Joe has written the best book on web accessibility, Building Accessible Websites. Joe is focusing on writing books and his new research project. I wish Joe the best on his journey and future projects.
