Constructing a POUR Website

POUR stands for Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and recently WebAIM hosted a live webcast on this topic of the next generation of Web accessibility, in which principles—rather than techniques—take the center stage. It takes some effort to switch from a techniques centered mindset to a principle-centered mindset, but the end result is a site that is more usable by people with disabilities and not just "standards-compliant."
