A little song dedicated to Henny, our team’s queen of accessibility.
UPDATE: Make that Jack Pickard as well. A much-loved accessibility expert, now much-missed.

Jeff Allen‘s clever song rewrites led me to have a go myself.

Inaccessible, that’s what you are.
Inaccessible, to a screen reader.
Like an art museum with no access ramp
you’re losing hits and dropping Page Rank.
Never before has a website been more…

Inaccessible, in every way,
and with no updates, that’s how you’ll stay.
That’s why, webmaster, it’s incredible
that a site so inaccessible
thinks that I won’t find another site soon.

Images should have alt tags (text)
and keyboard users, can they tab through your page?
If not, why not?
[end spoken]

Like never before,
with plugins galore.

Inaccessible, that’s what you are.
Inaccessible, pushing people afar.
I’ve got no official disability
but your site, to me, is a mystery.
Hope the next site is not
inaccessible too.
