Accessibility Kit for SharePoint (AKS) 1.0

Posted by workerthread on November 29, 2007

This is now available here and is a toolkit for developers to use with SharePoint Server 2007 or Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 for creation of sites and applications which advance the accessibility of people with disabilities, especially those who are vision impaired.  Several clients have asked about this in the past months – I haven’t had a chance to look at it myself yet, but it is worth noting this from the SharePoint Team Blog

“To reiterate the approach that we’re taking with the AKS, it is being developed as a set of building blocks rather than an end-to-end solution. We expect many SharePoint partners to take various pieces of the kit and integrate them into their respective product or service offerings while some customers will integrate particular components of the kit into their SharePoint deployment processes”

So it won’t be a case of clicking on Setup and expecting everything to be compliant…
