Accessible design for websites

It's more than just good practice

Traditionally most think of that accessible design is focused on people with disabilities, but also has many benefits to other groups such as those using mobile devices, or those with slow network connections.

Inclusion and Usability

ADA compliance refers to the Americans with Disabilities Act, which is a federal law that ensures that people with disabilities have the same opportunities to access and use the internet as those without disabilities. To design a website that is ADA compliant, you will need to ensure that your website is accessible to people with disabilities, including those who use assistive technology such as screen readers.

Here are some steps you can take to design an ADA compliant website:

  • Use high-contrast colors for text and background to make it easier for people with visual impairments to read your content.
  • Use clear and descriptive headings and subheadings to help screen reader users navigate your website.
  • Provide alt text for images to provide a description of the image for screen reader users.
  • Use simple and straightforward language that is easy to understand, and avoid using complex jargon or language that may be difficult for some people to understand.
  • Use properly formatted tables to present data in a way that is accessible to screen reader users.
  • Include captions and transcripts for videos and audio content to make it accessible to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
  • Use proper HTML coding and follow web accessibility standards, such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), to ensure that your website is accessible to people with disabilities.

By following these steps, you can design a website that is both beautiful and functional, and that is also accessible to people with disabilities.
