  • 21. How do you make your site accessible?
    • Correct structural and semantical page buildup
    • Make a clear separation between layout and structure
    • Respect the order of elements
    • Degrade gracefully for browsers without javascript
    • Write understandably, make scannable pages
    • Test for color blindness, use redundant methods (icons, color, text)
  • 22. Benefits of focusing on a11y
    • Open your site to a larger audience
    • > 10% of the population has reading difficulties, aging population
    • It’s easier for users with little or no prerequisite knowledge and inexperienced surfers
    • Impact on external findability and searchability
    • 34% faster navigation for all users
    • Lower digital divide
    • Extra cost: 5 - 15% for a standard website project
  • 23. Conclusions
    • Accessibility does not mean unattractive design
    • Accessibility is for a large group of people, not only for visually impaired visitors
    • Part of user friendliness
    • Not rocket science
    • Possible for applications too
    • All users benefit from it
