Accessibility Guidelines

Selected for you

Design

From colours, contrast and focus, to touch target, actionable elements and adjustability. Design covers a broad spectrum for all of us to be aware of. Design your specs, visuals and code according to these standards.

Training

We would also like YOU to become a champ!

Based on global conventions and standards, Team A11Y provides training that builds upon the baseline. The training can be given in different formats to match the needs of different disciplines, e.g. Customer Journey Experts, Developers and Designers/UX, and different experience levels, from ad-hoc solutions and presentation to complete curriculums.

Content

Clear, simple, consistent and understandable content for all users to comprehend. Where, when and how to supply extra text for clarity is where this section adds value to a more inclusive world. Check out the advice based on lots of research!

Testing

Most Guidelines are best practices which can easily be tested with specific objective criteria. They are technologically possible to achieve with current assistive technology on desktop and mobile devices. Others are less testable but considered core to accessible mobile website and apps.

Code

A proper codebase following the standards for the specific platforms and technologies creates robustness.

Robust in this case means all technologies and tools of choice, according to people's needs, can work with the products created, 100% guaranteed!

Global Conventions

What were those standards like again?

When people are new to accessibility, it's easy for them to get overwhelmed by all of the standards, global conventions, laws, and regulations. Providing Baseline Guidelines is what the accessibility team does. So don't worry, we have it covered and are always ready to help.
