conversation with a large university system that was considering deploying WordPress as a resource for faculty blogs, within the institutional requirements that the site had to comply with WCAG 2.0 at level AA. Rest installation reviewed by an expert blind user with JAWS, who had come back with a number of problems, including: Problems with navigation and information sharing with the content slider Problems with user feedback in the contact form Problems with missing alt attributes These weren’t the only problems cited, but that doesn’t change the nature of the problem. The problem is that none of these are characteristics of WordPress. The slider might have been from the theme, or from a plug-in. The contact form was probably a plug-in. The alt attributes? A user input problem, ultimately. One of Drupal’s advantages in accessibility is that it does provide a core mechanism for generating forms.

Email validation is a hard problem that every single developer, building anything on the web, has to deal with. We actually have been working on email validation ourselves for years (more on that below). We looked at the validation services available and weren’t satisfied with any of them, either for performance, accuracy or completeness reasons. So today, we’re releasing a project we affectionately called Guardpost, as our newest API, and are also pulling back the curtain to show exactly how we built it. RackSpace is launching this as a free service that anyone collecting email through web forms can (and should!) use.

Contact forms have evolved a lot since the days of simple bland html forms. This holds especially true for portfolio websites and design agencies.

The current designs are beautiful and can be extremely creative. Besides the common fields that everyone expects, forms can be enhanced by adding extra features such as maps, social networking information and appealing illustrations.

A solid and elegant contact form reassures the viewer’s confidence in the person or company behind the site and improves the overall experience.
