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 a second book on Canadian English. (Book № 3 is underway.)

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 hundreds of pages are published here, at my personal site, and on my personal Weblog, among other places. I have tens of thousands of photos available, as on Flickr. As a stickler, I write valid HTML with good type and copy. (In fact, I wrote a guide for other journalists on producing clean copy.) I’m happy to publish these documents for readers’ enjoyment and elucidation.
