Although you may not realise this, there are people in the world who are both blind and deaf. These people "read" documents by using some sort of tactile display, for example, a Braille console that translates the text on Web Programmers web page into Braille symbols which they can feel with their fingers.

I mentioned earlier that even CAPTCHA images that have accompanying playable audio files have accessibility issues. For people who are both blind and deaf, neither the image nor the audio file is accessible to them. If you use such a CAPTCHA method to protect yourself from spam, you are also inadvertently blocking out some people.

This tutorial is obviously not exhaustive, in both the types of disabilities discussed as well as in the measures that webmasters can take to make browsing their site easier for people with disabilities. I will address other aspects of accessibility in separate articles on thesitewizard.com.

For now, if you are looking for ways to improve your website, the above is probably good as a starting point to make your site more accessible. Use it as a checklist for evaluating your existing sites as well as when designing a new one.

Captcha is a necessary evil.
