How to totally ‘dis’ Ecma-376 in two pages

I have just read this paper from the Adaptive Technology Resource Centre at the University of Toronto. It is clear, articulate and concise. Unlike the 6000+ page “specification” document to which it refers.

Many of it’s findings are not new in themselves but when discussed in the arena of accessibility it makes for a very good read.

How, please, have we got into this mess? We have one of the world’s largest and richest companies, producing a totally sub-standard specification and trying to force it through our International Standards bodies.

There is only one winner if Ecma-376 gets ISO approval in its current form – and it isn’t you or me….
