Accessibility Training: Three Simple Steps to Make Websites Accessible

Today, I wanted to share a training video I produced on the occasion of this year’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day, May 18, 2017. I highlight three simple but important techniques to make websites accessible.

But what is the target audience of this video?

Front-end developers, web content creators/managers, and aspiring accessibility testers are the main IT producers who will learn from this video.

Who are the accessibility consumers that would benefit the most from the implementation of this training module’s techniques and what are those techniques?

• Organize content logically with short paragraphs and lists under appropriate headings. Users with cognitive and learning disabilities benefit the most from a well-structured and logically organized content.
• Ensure that browser’s text resizing capability can handle text enlargement up to 200 percent without loss of content and functionality. This makes web content accessible to low vision users.
• Test for keyboard navigation in form fields and controls. This benefits blind users the most.
