Teach a man to fish....

I once used the phrase “Teach a man to fish” in a Web Accessibility presentation. I have been ridiculed ever since! This phrase was used in the context of teaching users how they can adapt / customise their browsers, software and tools to improve their user experience. A simple example is teaching visually impaired users how to increase the text size in a browser.

Here is an post from Accessify which discusses this matter further: http://accessify.com/news/2007/09/teach-a-man-to-fish-or-how-to-resize-text/
