Accessibility

An accessible site is one that accommodates the full range of users. Designing for accessibility therefore means accepting that, for online information, there is:

  • no standard information user, and
  • no standard device for browsing information

An accessible website does not exclude anybody due to:

  • their abilities, or
  • the method they choose to access the web

Accessible websites prioritise clear content, structure and ease of navigation over frilly aspects of design; however, they need not be visually unattractive, nor are they prevented from using the latest web technologies, provided that all information is still accessible to users.
