Campaign: Product Accessibility

Website to Learn from Mistakes/Success

The problem with the language of the rules and regulations is that they are open for interpretation and each company implementing a new application or site can interpret differently. I think an official site that contains a running archive of compliant vs. non compliant examples of actual implementations for each rule/regulation (and why they have that status) would be helpful. That way, you could check your implementation/idea against the database. If you don't see it on there, send it in for an official review to be shared on the site. For example, applets and plugins, say you wanted to implement a link in the footer to view all plugins required on the site to cover this requirement but wasn't sure if that was good enough to be compliant. You could go on this site and see if it had ever been implemented that way and if that implementation was accepted/rejected... or again, never tried.
