Obama and accessibility

Just sent this to the Obama website ( is consistent).


I love your site and have blogged about it - but your lack of attention to accessibility concerns me. Simple alt-text on images is missing.

I may be a foreigner but I bet a few Americans would be similar unimpressed.

Otherwise, go Barack!

p.s. please fix the 'alt text' - it's the least you can do.


  1. I would love to hear back about what youh heard. Accessibility is one of my strong points, so I would love to write in also. I know a group of people that also have accessibility ranked #1 like me, and they would gladly write in.

    My e-mail is on my webpage.

  2. Hi Ryan

    emailed you as well but for the record I just used the form on the website. If you do it too, maybe they'd pay attention (being a potential vote loser and all that!).
