Accessability for Disabled Users

When planning and developing websites and online services, considering how users understand and navigate them is hugely important. By understanding who is likely to want your products and services, we can consider their needs and capabilities.

Websites can be accessed many ways, for example using mobiles and tablets and the layout and navigation need to be usable for a broad spectrum of customers, with a wide range of devices.

Issues such as contrast and colour schemes for the visually impaired and colour blind may also be important issues during the design process. The ability for screen readers and text based browsers to access and make sense of your site can improve accessabilit and, depending on your likely audience, can also address legal and customer support issues.

Sites that include video or sound should include transcripts and images should have meaningful names, alternate text and preferably captions.
