About the Web Accessibility Wiki

The Web Accessibility Wiki is a project started by Jon Gibbins with the aim of being a central reference for useful and reliable information about web accessibility. The idea is not to duplicate the information about web accessibility that's out there on the Web, but to provide an useful index to it.

The wiki finally came into being following a discussion on Accessify Forum.


The wiki is just starting out, so it's a little thin on content right now. Hopefully that will soon change. If you would like to contribute, please have a quick read of this section.

  • A wiki should be a familiar for most web developers, but help is at hand if you don't know what to do.
  • The idea is to organise the wiki into topics, but a sorting area has been set aside for anything that may need to be sorted into topics.
  • Please feel free to contribute anything that you have found useful when learning about web accessibility.
  • If you would like to contribute a large chunk of information, it may be best to put it in the sorting area first.
  • If you're unsure of something, use the discussion tab on pages.
  • There's a to do list of things that people can help with or feel free to make a suggestion for the wiki.

Some ideas for things to link to:

  • articles
  • tutorials, tips and techniques
  • tools
  • forum discussions
  • video footage
  • other useful links
  • quotes (please cite a source)

The project aims to avoid the need to impose rules for contributing to the wiki. All that is asked at the moment is that, if you want to be a part of the community on this wiki, please take part with a respectful and collaborative attitude.

Thanks for taking an interest in the wiki and the project.

The Web can be accessible. Let's get cracking!
