This book does an excellent job of discussing the most significant areas of web accessibility. I reviewed the book on-line and used the Table of Contents located in the left, vertical menu. An index or glossary was not visible. The book provided links to web accessibility tools that were introduced throughout the book. If you downloaded the tools as you worked through the text, by the end of the book you have a very nice Accessibility Tool Box. The links are also available as a list at the end of the Table of Contents.
The book accurately reports on WCAG criteria. No errors or biases were found.
The content is current and not expected to be out-of-date in the near future.
The book is written in a consistent manner that is easy to read.
The book established a sample company in the first unit and consistently built upon the same scenario throughout the entire textbook.
The book is organized by chapters with a Self Test at the conclusion of each chapter.
The authors did an excellent job of dividing complex ideas into digestible pieces. Also, the authors were able to build on concepts from earlier chapters later in the book.
No accessibility issues were encountered using the on-line version of the book and a Chrome browser.
The author might consider adding punctuation to the options of the multiple-choice questions in each of the Self Tests.
The text does not contain any culturally insensitive references. However, there is a section that explains how to be sensitive to those with disabilities. The instruction uses example, that if taken out of context, would be offensive.
This book presents web accessibility information in an excellent fashion. I will continue to use this book as a reference tool and share it with everyone that I know.
