Re: [ia-55] Responsive Design and 508 Compliance?

Hey Stephen,

I don't know the answer to your question, but, I don't see that the two issues are dependent. Responsiveness is all about layout, and accessibility is about making it work for people for whom the layout is not he most important part. Good accessibility coding practices should translate no matter what the layout or target size is. 

I'm sure there are areas I'm not thinking of, where they do overlap, and for that, I would reccomend two resources:

1. The WebAIM mailing list is active and very helpful:

2. The Brand new Los Angeles Accessibility and Inclusive Design group has it's first in-person meeting next week! Check them out

Good luck! Please let me know what you find out!

Good morning and Happy 5th of July UX'ers.

I am working on a large project right now, and we're moving toward a Responsive Design development strategy. In addition to this, we have to adhere to 508 Compliance standards. Has anyway on this list had experience with having a Responsively Designed site that maintains 508 compliance?

Thanks in advance.
