Joe Clark: Accessibility ¶ Design ¶ Writing

I am a journalist and author in Toronto. My writing includes hundreds of articles; a first book on Web accessibility and a second book on Canadian English spelling; and a personal blog. I used to do consulting in Web accessibility, but I don’t do that anymore. I still do research on accessibility – topics like captioning and audio description. I have a longstanding interest in typography, and I did a lot of work on the typography of the Toronto subway (TTC).
