I am redesigning my churches website and one of my stipulations
is to make (and keep) the site accessible. The church would
like to include a calendar where one person could enter events
(including recurring events if possible) that would then be
viewable by others. Google has just what we are looking for.
Is the Google calendar accessible?
What makes the calendar accessible or not accessible?
In general terms, you need to find a calendar which uses table markup correctly, including table headers so that a user with a screen reader can associate the rows and columns with the data.
You should test potential candidates using the included tools in browsers such as Opera or Firefox, including disabling scripting.
Not that it is impossible, or even all that difficult to localize calendars ... Just something to remember and do.
