Accessibility For Everyone

I wrote a book! It’s called Accessibility For Everyone, and you can buy it in paperback and ebook from A Book Apart, and as an audiobook on Audible. Do you want to know about how to make your website more accessible to people with disabilities and other accessibility-related needs? My book helps you do just that.

For those more experienced in the web, Accessibility For Everyone can fill in the accessibility-sized gaps in your knowledge. And for people entirely new to making websites, it should help you get started on the right track. The book is aimed at web designers, developers, content strategists, copywriters, researchers, testers, and anybody else who makes websites.

My friend Terence Eden kicked off the book reviews with a lovely five-star review, and Michael Larsen wrote a long-form review across multiple blog posts which starts with Accessibility for Everyone: A Long-Form, Multi Part Book Review.

Buy the mug!

A Book Apart also sells mugs printed with each of their book covers. If you want a beautifully-designed mug that reminds everybody you’re a well-read person who cares about accessibility, you should buy one!

Two photos. One showing Laura drinking from a green mug with the Accessibility For Everyone book cover printed on it. The other showing Oskar the husky-malamute dog looking at the same mug and licking his nose.
