Websites should be accessible for all people, including those with disabilities. This means the site should:
Have keyboard accessibility - it should be possible to navigate the whole site using just a keyboard.
Have a clear contrast between text and background colours
Have text alternatives to media on the website, such as images and videos
Have form labels to guide users when completing forms
Have clear headings and structure so the user can easily understand the website.
Be consistent and predictable in their design, layout and behaviour
Have a clear, consistent navigation, making it easy for users to find what they need.
Search engines are clamping down on websites which aren’t accessible and website owners are being fined if their website doesn’t meet accessibility requirements. Therefore, if your website doesn’t meet the current guidelines you need to prioritise fixing it or creating a new website.
