Quick Tips to a more Accessible site
• Include “alt” tags (alternative descriptions) and title tags in all images and videos.
• Make your links look like links. Use colors that distinguish them from regular text and use an underline to set them apart.
• Make your body text legible.
• Also, make sure your stylesheet permits variable font sizes. If you’re using a fixed font, older browsers don’t let users adjust text size. (In Firefox and IE, you can hit command + or – to increase or decrease the size of the text on screen.)
• Give your photos captions, so the vision-impaired can know what they’re looking at.
• Provide a paragraph of summary for your videos and audio podcasts — or, if possible, a transcript.
• Don’t use “click here” as a link. Instead, offer context about what it’s about and link the relevant words.
