How To Make Websites Accessible For The Blind And Visually Impaired

Color circlesMaking a website accessible enables users with physical or visual disabilities to more easily navigate, read, understand, and use the site.  Good websites, and web designers, understand how to make a website accessible and incorporate those techniques into the site.  They may even get the site certified as "accessible".

Here are just a few of the ways to make a site accessible:
  1. Ensure lots of contrast between foreground and background colors.
  2. Every image should have an image tag (i.e., alt text).
  3. Avoid only using color for emphasis.
  4. Enable control via the keyboard, not just the mouse.
  5. Links and buttons should be accurately described.
  6. Ensure that each page has a descriptive title
