Website Accessibility

In order to ensure that web content provided to students is accessible, it is important to understand what makes a website accessible.

Features of Accessible Websites

  • Proper use of HTML headings.
  • Images need to have alternative descriptions.
  • Links and buttons should have title tags.
  • Menu navigation should be accessible.
  • Web pages can be navigated with a keyboard.
  • Form controls should use labels, instructions, and validation/error messages.
  • For data, tables should have column headers.
  • The website should have proper color contrast. Color should not be used to convene meaning alone.
  • Link text should make sense on its own and not be vague.
  • Lists should be ordered or unordered.
