Make your website accessible to reach wider audience
Making your website accessible for persons with vision, hearing, mobility, learning and cogitative disabilities makes good business sense. Offering equal access to your website for people with disabilities allows you to reach a broader range of audience and clients.
Here are some key requirements for making your website accessible:
Users must be able to navigate your website using a keyboard.
Help users find and navigate content by labelling links clearly. You must have clear titles and headings and limit the use of images to help users with disabilities find the content they are looking for.
Pictures and Videos
If you're posting content in an audio, video or image format, you must have an alternative version in text. Images should include descriptive text on what is in the image," and videos should have closed captions for those who are hearing disabilities and audio descriptions for people who are blind.
Easy to understand language
As far as possible, use clear and simple language and breaking up your text into well-structured blocks which help readers to read your web contents.
Google has said before again and again—“make sites for users, not search engines.” And they’re going to continue beating that particular drum. But website accessibility takes this concept to a whole new level. By Adding the full web accessibility will take some time and effort, but in the end it’s worth it. You’ll have a site that is prepared to meet the needs of all its users.
