How to Plan & Design For Web Accessibility

Talk by Dylan Wages / View Slides

Designing an accessible website takes planning at all stages of the development process. In this presentation, I will go over key design and UX elements and how to make them accessible. I will cover topics like navigation, page structure, colors, links, ARIA labels, and testing tools to help you accomplish a more user-friendly and accessible website. 

Questions on “How to Plan & Design For Web Accessibility

  1. Early in your presentation you showed the various disabilities in different sized circles. Did the larger sizes reflect more people having that disability?

  2. Given that very high contrast can be required for some users, but poor for others, do you suggest that sites provide contrast options, or just depend on OS systems like Windows High Contrast?

  3. Early in your presentation you showed the various disabilities in different sized circles. Did the larger sizes reflect more people having that disability? Do you have percentages for these or can share your source?

  4. what’s a good color contrast mid-range for body text to use as default between 4.5:1 and 21:1, that also allows us to select a link contrast color?
