The Acquia blog has posted the second part in their series sharing tips for developers around web accessibility. In this new post they focus on page content and making things accessible.
We’re at the halfway point of what hopefully has been a helpful guide for developers to make a website accessible for all visitors. (If you missed the first part of this two-part series, please click here.) In this blog, we’ll review how instructional text, navigation, and other parts of development can allow those with blindness and low vision, deafness, and other disabilities to make full use of a website.
In the post they share helpful tips on:
- There’s a Proper Place for Instructional Text
- A Search that Searches When Instructed
- Jump Directly to Main Content
- An Easier Way to Zoom and Shrink
- Know What to Show; What to Hide
Each item comes with a brief summary (and screenshots where it helps) to illustrate the point.
