8 Things AndiSites Does to Ensure Website Accessibility

What is Web Accessibility?

The principles of web accessibility are known by the acronym “POUR”:

Perceivable   
Operable   
Understandable   
Robust  

Accessibility, as it applies to the web, can be best described by the definition of the word.

The quality of being easy to approach, reach, enter, speak with, use, or understand.

 

How We Ensure Website Accessibility

 

AndiSites works hard to make every site we design accessible by:

1. Removal of any cumbersome extra code. This allows screen readers to focus on what the user wants: the content.

2. Only using fonts and colors that have the required clarity and contrast, so low-sighted users have an easier time reading the text.

3. Adding meaningful Alt text to site images. This significantly assists screen reader users, low-sighted users, and cognitive disability users to more fully understand the images. And as a bonus, good quality Alt text also helps with SEO (Search Engine Optimization)!

4. Designing every website in a way that makes sense. Unquestionably, everyone benefits if the site is easy to use.

5. Fixing any broken links. Not only are they a red flag to Google, but it frustrates users and means that they might not trust a particular site.

6. Creating CTAs (Calls to Action) that are easy to interact with by increasing margins and clickable area. Read more in our post: Why We Like Big Buttons!

7. Making hyperlinks stand out from the text by underlining.

8. Ensuring each site’s navigation is understandable and operable from multiple users’ stand point.
