In an interesting post, Web Designer Mike Cherim wonders what damage we can do to the accessibility of Web sites by overdoing it with accessibility features. I’ve been thinking about this myself and find that I agree with Mike when he says that some accessibility features are either so misunderstood, poorly implemented, or unknown that they are probably best steered clear of (Access keys) or used in moderation.
