Accessibility, Now Is The Time!


Accessibility should always be the first thing a web designer things about, and plans, when constructing their latest (and greatest) website. If it’s for personal gain, or a client’s site, our design process should (needs to, actually) include a accessible “road map”.

Is the site’s navigation menu accessible via the keyboard, if our user has a motor skill disability? Can a color-blind user make out which is a link, and which is standard text? Can they see clearly the content’s text area, or is the color for foreground and background too simular in hue?

Once these questions are answered before the site goes live, and the site is marked up semantically correct, well…we’ve just helped a segment of our population enjoy our little piece of the internet!
