“Eddie’s toolbar”* is only the most visible of ABC’s attempts to make this site accessible to all visitors. We work to include alternate text for images, make our pages screen reader friendly, and choose color contrasts that are friendly for the visually impaired. If you are aware of other simple things we non-technical volunteers can do to make our site and our breed accessible to all, please don’t hesitate to use our contact form to share your suggestion with our webmaster.
*Eddie’s toolbar is named for Eddie Cardoshinsky, a visually impaired technician who worked for Microsoft, testing software accessibility. He was a friend of one of our long-time members, and we hope we have built a site that would have enabled him to discover this wonderful breed.
