Free accessibility book & podcast

I listened to an interesting interview with Shawn Henry, accessibility expert and author of Just Ask: Integrating Accessibility Throughout Design.

She talks to Gerry Gaffney about the release of version 2 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, and usability testing with disabled users.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0 - an interview with Shawn Henry (mp3 download and full transcript)

The book
Shawn's introduction summarises what her book is all about:

This book helps you improve your products—websites, software, hardware, and consumer products—to remove accessibility barriers and avoid adding new barriers. One guiding principle is: just ask people with disabilities.
Note that the book reflects US disability discrimination legislation.
