CBC Wants To Be More Accessible. Go CBC!

I meant to post this last week, but here it is now. Oh well, a week is a marked improvement compared to how long it usually takes me to post things.

I went to Accessibility Camp Toronto last Saturday. I love going to those things. I always pick up tidbits of information, plus get re-energized.

One of the things I learned is that CBC is looking to make themselves more accessible. To that end, they have an accessibility feedback form. What I don’t get is the link is www.cbc.ca/accessibility/feedback, but if you go to the accessibility page, there’s no link to the feedback form. It’s like you have to know the secret word to get in. How does that promote getting feedback? Maybe I’m crazy, and there’s a screamin’ blinkin’ link somewhere, but I didn’t see it.

So, if there are things on the CBC website, TV, mobile stuff, anything CBC, that you find to be a giant accessibility pain in the neck, go to that form and have your say. I still have to do it.

Also, look at that cool CAPTCHA alternative they have. I think it’s awesome. Hopefully it’s doing its job.
