Four Examples of How Your Website Can Be Made More Accessible:

  1. Include a font-size changer into the layout of your website, so that if a user has visual impairments he or she can easily choose to increase or decrease the text size of the content of your website.

  • Provide a way for users to skip repetitive sections of your content – for instance, creating a ‘Skip To Content’ link as the first link on the website, that way assistive technologies can jump directly to the heart of the website and get the information they want without having to sift through the navigation links beforehand.

  • Include ALT tags (descriptions) of the important images on your website that add to the value of the content. If you have a blind visitor who cannot see an image, they will instead be able to read what content the image contains.

  • Include a Click-To-Talk button on your website, so that users who have a hard time reading or understanding your content can instantly contact a Live customer care person for further information.
