Equal access

An accessible website is about making your website easy to use for all users to your website regardless of any impairment or disability status.

This approach doesn’t impact on the creativity or system choice, it opens up your organisation to every website visitor and device regardless of impairment, age and connection speed to the internet.

Accessible design is good design

We like to start thinking about accessibility right from the beginning of a project. When designing a website you need to focus on your users and the underpinning code framework and practices to ensure maximum visibility.

There is often a balance to be had between creativity and animation and how accessible your website is, but we can guide you through the process, and making recommendations to ensure the best result.

External accessibility website audits

Depending on the nature of your website you might have to have your website audited by a third party for compliance needs, especially if you are a public facing service.

We can work with you ensure your website reaches the required accessibility levels and provide any relevant training when updating the content on your website to ensure it remains compliant.

Key accessibility considerations

There are many design features and considerations in order to deliver an accessible website experience

Semantic HTML

Use proper HTML elements to structure content, such as headings, paragraphs, lists, and links, to make the website more navigable for screen readers.

Alternative text

Provide descriptive alt attributes for images to convey their content or function to users who cannot see them.

Keyboards

Ensure all functionality and interactive elements can be operated via keyboard alone, as some users may not be able to use a mouse.

Colour contrast

Choose colour combinations that have sufficient contrast to make text and other content readable for users with colour vision deficiencies.

Descriptive links

Use meaningful link text that describes the destination or purpose of the link, rather than generic phrases like “click here.”

Content structure

Organise content logically using headings, lists, and other formatting elements to assist screen reader users in navigating the content.

Responsive design

Ensure that the website layout adapts to different screen sizes and orientations, making it usable on various devices, including mobile phones and tablets.

Focus indicators

Ensure that interactive elements receive focus outlines or indicators, making it clear which element currently has keyboard focus.
