A-Prompt Project A-Prompt (Accessibility Prompt) is a software tool designed to help Web authors improve the usability of Web pages created in HTML format. A-Prompt first evaluates an HTML Web page to identify barriers to accessibility by people with disabilities. A-Prompt then provides the Web author with a fast and easy way to make the necessary repairs. By taking this approach, A-Prompt helps Web authors to include HTML features which widen the range of users who can access their website. A-Prompt is an application available for Windows 98/98SE/2000/Me/XP. A-Prompt allows the author to select a file or for validation and repair, or select a single HTML element within a file. The tool may be customized to check for different conformance levels, based on the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 . Fig. 2.

Applying the ADA to the Internet A Web Accessibility Standard Test your Site for Accessibility with Cynthia Says ™ ADA Coordinator, City of San Jose, CA USA Written and Presented on June 17, 1998 at the request of the American Bar Association for their National Conference "In Pursuit . . . A Blueprint for Disability Law and Policy" Although it may seem that the World Wide Web has been like the Wild, Wild, West --where there are no laws and each frontier web site is on its own, there are significant legal and practical reasons for ensuring web accessibility. Universal Design calls for the development of information systems flexible enough to accommodate the needs of the broadest range of users of computers and telecommunications equipment, regardless of age or disability. Yet, the benefits of accessible web design extend beyond the community of people with disabilities and an aging population since it enables low technology to access high technology. I. II.

Web Site Design Profiles_ Guidelines by Profile "Media models" are recognizable combinations of color, imagery, layout and graphical treatment that people are used to seeing in advertising, television shows, movies, video games and other media. People associate different models with the messages they are used to getting in those forms ... black and white photographs accompanied by closely set text in narrow columns is a simple model associated with newspapers, so the use of these elements in combination may suggest journalism, accuracy of fact, realism and authenticity. By observing the components of media models you can adopt their "looks" and use them to encourage the response you want from your audience. Remember that people seek out different media models as cues to the experiences they will get, and they are not always in the mood to have the same kind of experience.
