Remember 2017 when every website had to have a GDPR statement? 2023 is all about Accessibility. Think:
Text to speech
High contrast between text & backgrounds.
Adjustable text sizes
Descriptive alt tags for images
Focus indicators for links.
These are all vital components to help the disabled community access websites. Whilst we can’t cater for every single tool these communities will use to access a website, we can ensure the main frame, design and build is completely accessible so potential websites users aren’t alienated.
You can make sure your website meets accessibility requirements without spending additional money or buying software, with these simple processes:
A simple, free thing to start with is a voice search plugin. Simply install the free plugin to your website, activate it and your search bar will have a microphone on it which you can use for voice searching.
If you have the budget to use additional plugins which help with accessibility that’s great, however do your research before buying as not all of them are compliant with accessibility regulations.
