Designing for accessibility


Compliant websites do not have to be dull.

  • Do not rely on colour to convey information.
  • Text colour should contrast background colour.
  • Font size defined in CSS should be customisable by user.
  • Important images should have a meaningful ‘alt’ attribute & description.
  • Provide text-based alternative to audio or video content.
  • Content requiring specific plug-in should be available in HTML too.
  • Pages should be valid to HTML 4.01 Transitional.
  • Link labels should be informative, not just ‘click here’.
