Individuals with physical, sensory or learning impairments may not be able to effectively access electronic information that is created without universal access in mind. This guidance explains how certain impairments can affect access, and how to build content with accessibility in mind.
Individuals with visual impairments may use adaptive technology such as screen readers to read the words on a webpage aloud. Screen readers cannot scan and interpret pictures and images. Additionally, some formats may appear to be in text, but are actually images of a document.
Users might become confused at complex website layouts or inconsistent navigational schemes.
Audio is inaccessible.
Users may not be able to operate a mouse.
Many online resources can help you to understand and plan for accessibility, regardless of your level of experience. A helpful general overview can be found at Creative Bloq’s Get Started with Web Accessibility guide.
