Web accessibility helps users, especially those with disabilities, to equally experience and access online platforms, creating a better user experience.
Making your website accessible can also expand your website’s reach and drive higher traffic to your site. Also, if you fail to comply with accessibility standards, you may face legal risks.
Here are six methods to improve web accessibility:
🟣 Insert Alt Texts in All Images
The alt text (alternative text) describes the content of an image, helping users who have visual impairments understand your content. When writing your alt text, keep it short and descriptive.
🟣 Add Captions or Transcript Video and Audio Content
Make sure that users with visual or hearing impairments can access all of your video and audio content by adding captions or text transcripts. Captions are often available on video content, while text transcripts can be helpful for video and audio content.
🟣 Check the Site’s Color Contrast
Some people cannot read content that does not have sufficient contrast between the text and background. The contrast ratio must be at least 4 to 5 to 1 for normal-sized text. Also, consider providing different color contrast options.
🟣 Avoid Using Content That Flashes
Avoid having moving and flashing content as they can trigger seizures in people with photosensitive disorders. Include a way for users to pause, stop, or hide dynamic content to give them better control over these elements.
🟣 Optimize the Content Structure and Readability
Screen readers and other assistive technologies use your website structure to help users with disabilities understand its content. So, every page and post should have a noticeable title and proper headings.
🟣 Create an Intuitive Navigation
Make sure that every part of your website is accessible using a keyboard, as not everyone can use a mouse.
