Design for accessibility
Design provides the foundations for accessibility.
Design accessible websites
When designing for the web, consider:
Do all elements meet colour contrast to an AA standard?
Does content have a clear order and hierarchy?
Are interactive elements easy to identify?
Are navigation options clear and consistent?
Are layouts responsive to different viewports?
Considerations will vary depending on what you are designing.
See the a11y project checklist for a complete list of design considerations.
