Is this accessible?

Posted on 8 September 2008. Filed under: Announcements | Tags: |

If you use a screen reader (Jaws or whatever), please let me know if this creates an accessibility problem for you:

If you are a regular We Can Do reader, then you will have noticed that I changed a few things in the right hand navigation bars. In particular, I turned both the Archives and the list of topic Categories into “drop down” menus. I’m still learning about what does and doesn’t create problems for people using screen readers. Please let me know if you find the drop down menus difficult to use or inaccessible.

Of course also let me know if these create an accessibility barrier due to other disabilities.

I wanted to use drop down menus because both the monthly archives and the list of categories were getting very long. But I can change back if the drop down menu is a problem.

You can comment in the comments area below, or send me an email to ashettle [at]

I will eventually delete this post after people have had a chance to respond.

(Regular readers who come here via the main page will notice another change: instead of showing the most recent post, it shows a listing of the most recent few posts. I had nothing to do with this change. The people at like to occasionally change things around on me. I don’t particularly like this change, but unfortunately, if there’s a way to change it without switching to an entirely new theme, I don’t know how to do it. So I’m hoping readers can cope with it.)

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
