Short article on the need for accessibility regulators to embrace the idea
of accessibility supported and recognise that the HTML only perspective of
1999 no longer works. 

In my view, we need to look forward, not back. Rather than putting a lot of
effort into correcting the accessibility failures of the last ten years, we
should put in place a process that embraces the diversity of web
technologies, so long as they are used in a way that is accessible.




I am sure many will disagree with what I suggest, but I think it is time we
considered taking a more pragmatic approach.
