Web Accessibility 101 – Engaging Web Experiences For Everyone! -

How can designers make the web more accessible to the elderly? How about children with special needs? The answer is web accessibility. What is it? Web accessibility is basically a practice that allows people with disabilities to use the web the same way as everyone else.

The main aim of this practice is to remove barriers that might prevent disabled people from interacting with or accessing websites. Designers are often tasked to develop tools that might help such individuals to overcome these barriers. They can use tech savvy design tools or other means to help disabled people to overcome their incapacity to use websites.

For instance, they can develop tools that might help a dyslexic child make sense in the text of an eBook. They can also design websites that allow aging or short sighted individuals to navigate through them easily.

What does it take for a designer to develop accessible websites? What are the factors that should be kept in mind? Scroll down to find out.
