Deaf awareness for web teams
with Lisa Herrod
Deafness is one of the least understood areas of web accessibility as we know it. When creating accessible websites, people often think of deafness as simply the inverse of blindness; all you need do is provide audio descriptions for the blind and transcripts for the deaf, right..? Well not quite.There’s a lot more to deafness than simply being unable to hear, not least the fact that many Deaf have English as a second language.
