3. Metadata

Chapter 3. Metadata

One person’s content is another person’s metadata.

Stu Weibel

Among document formats, HTML is perhaps the most thoroughly researched with regard to accessibility. We know its strength is in its ability to express semantic meaning. In fact, most of HTML accessibility is about using semantics and structure correctly, enhancing them or working around their limitations.

When you look at your site, what do you see? Now load it in an older mobile device or mobile device emulator or a screen reader. Or find out what a search engine knows about it. The differences between your answer and theirs are the reason metadata is important.
