Creating an accessible digital workplace
Web accessibility means making your online presence as inclusive as possible to everyone – disability or not. It means creating content (visual or not) that is accessible to all users, regardless of their physical or cognitive abilities, their technological requirements or their cultural background, education and experience. When sites are properly designed, written and programmed, they offer universal access to information and functionality. Interface components must be presented in ways that all users can perceive, even if they have impaired vision or hearing.
Readability plays a significant role in accessibility. It is a measurement of the quality of legibility of text and making it as easy to read as possible. Readability refers to the clarity and speed with which content can be digested over an expanse of text such as a paragraph or a page. Readability is related to a font’s legibility but is also influenced by design and layout decisions. The chief factors determining whether the text is readable are dimension, spacing and alignment. Users with low vision express widely varying preferences when it comes to the presentation of text. The key to ensuring readability is contrast, which is determined by text size and how easily letterforms can be distinguished in a particular font. For users with low vision, color is an important factor.
