Joe Clark


I’m a journalist, author, and editor – more concisely, a writer – in Toronto. I have a huge portfolio of published newspaper and magazine articles. I literally wrote the book on Web accessibility for people with disabilities, plus another book on Canadian English. (I’m writing my third book.)

I go back more than 30 years in typography & graphic design.

I run several self-directed projects. One activity of note involved my reading all the published literature on gay and lesbian incomes and earnings. I’ve done paid research into usability and accessibility, and have written audio-description scripts. In many cases, I am the sole, or sole remaining, expert on a number of topics, like captioning.

I’ve lectured internationally since 1989.

I’ve been online since 1991, and I have thousands of Web pages available here, at my personal site, and on my personal Weblog, among other places. As a stickler, I write valid HTML with good type and copy. I’m happy to publish these documents for readers’ enjoyment and elucidation.
