DW has a new comm: [community profile] accessibility_fail. It's one of those comms we really wish we didn't need, but since we do, here it is.

From the profile:

"Have you ever been in an 'accessible' hotel room that had an half-inch-high curb at the threshhold? Ever been caught in a 22" wide wheelchair facing down a 20" door? Ever been assured that the allegedly-accessible route has 'just' one step?

"Take a picture. Then post it here, with where you were, what you noticed, and why that place fails at accessibility. (Filing ADA violation reports can be a community bonding activity!)

"Pictures aren't necessary, and whether or not you have a picture, describe the situation as completely as you can. (That way those with visual-based disabilities can share in the mocking of the fail as well.) And if you come across someplace that does it right, please also feel free to post accessibility wins.

"(All kinds of accessibility fail welcome: mobility-based, visual-based, physical-world, online-world, anything at all.)"
