Haley Penrod has provided a really useful service, rewriting the Web Accessibility Guidelines in a form that can be read by humans (as opposed to the original, which can be understood only by lawyers). Now of course I always have an eye to the future, and in the case of accessibility, I've always looked forward to the day when this is completely automated. It's not far away now. In fact, I imagine we could add another column to the right of this document and describe an AI or automated service that could perform the function for most content. Then all content would be accessible, not just that content where the designers have taken that extra step to make it so. Image: a PNG version of Intopia's PDF diagram of the new 2.2 Guidelines.
