Why mobile Web accessibility matters – best practices to make your mobile site accessible

“The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.” Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web. This mantra is as true for the mobile Web as it is for the desktop Web. Over a billion people worldwide live with some kind of disability, and 285 million have visual impairments (39 million are blind and 246 have low vision), according to World Health Organization (WHO). Given these numbers, what excuses are there for bad design practices that shut users out who are visually impaired and/or rely on assistive technologies?...

Mobile Web Design – Beyond Simple XHTML Pages III

In recent years, widgets have been widely popularized due to the success of Yahoo! Widgets (http://widgets.yahoo.com) and Mac OS X Dashboard (http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/dashboard).

The Nokia Web Browser Design Guide

Not exactly news as such, but I got around to reading this confusingly named guide only today (to be clear, it's about designing web content for mobile rather than designing web browsers). The guide says it is to "help developers see what kinds of issues to consider as their audience begins to use more and more mobile clients to access Web content" but actually it is more about designing content that works well with the new browser that's shipped on the latest S60 phones...
