New book: Engineering Software for Accessibility

I just saw this from the borntolearn site a New e-book: Engineering Software for Accessibility, which I plan to read by the end of the day on my way to province at north 😀 Just a 100 page book for those who are architecting and designing software’s. Based on the borntolearn site, you can  download this as a doc file from download.microsoft.com.

Also, the synopsis I shamefully copied from Barnes & Noble😀

Discover how to create accessible Web sites and software by planning for accessibility from the beginning of the development cycle-with design guidelines straight from Microsoft. This guide walks you through the process of reviewing the specification to create an accessible tree and identify keyboard navigation requirements. Learn to use the tree to determine where to apply common controls and when to create custom controls. Decide how to code controls and estimate implementation time for product development. And familiarize yourself with the basics of accessibility, including color contrast, font size, the handling of images, and systemwide settings.
