Making Websites Accessible:
- Comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA. Find out more at www.w3.org/WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative).
- When tendering for a website ensure that accessibility is built-in from the start. Use PAS78, “The guide to good practice in commissioning accessible websites” developed by the Disability Rights Commission and the British Standards Institute. www.equalityhumanrights.com (Search: Web Accessibility).
- Create a website design that is flexible so that users can change colours, font and font size to meet their individual requirements.
- Do regular accessibility checks on your site using the automated tools provided by the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) www.W3.org
- Involve disabled people in the planning and testing of your site.
- Get regular and organised feedback from disabled people about the accessibility and usability of your site.
