What is accessible web design?

Accessible web design, often referred to as web accessibility, is the practice of creating websites and digital content that can be used by all individuals, but in particular those with visual, auditory, cognitive, or motor impairments. It involves complying with specific guidelines, such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), to ensure that web content is accessible, perceivable and operable.

Benefits of accessible web design

A better experience for everyone

Accessible web design goes beyond accommodating users with disabilities; it aims to provide a better online experience for everyone. Utilising WCAG, accessible design promotes a well-structured page layout, enhances text readability and clarity, reduces unnecessary distractions and makes functionality, such as forms, easier to understand and complete without issue.

Broader audience reach

Accessible web design extends your online reach in three fundamental ways. Firstly, it enhances access for the general population, making your website usable by a wider audience. Secondly, it accommodates individuals that don’t necessarily have disabilities, but those who might face challenges when using technology. Lastly, it enables those with disabilities access to information or functions which may not be ordinarily available to them, or available to them easily.

Improved Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Accessible web design enhances your website’s search engine optimisation (SEO) performance. It promotes good page structure, ensuring meaningful headers and buttons with contextual purpose in addition to error-free code.. Furthermore, it promotes elements like alt text on images, image captions, and video transcripts, all of which enable search engines to index additional relevant content that may have not been available ordinarily.

Satisfies legal requirements

Accessible web design goes beyond just good practice; it’s a legal requirement. In line with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, businesses must make efforts to accommodate individuals with disabilities, ensuring equal access to digital content. Undertaking government work in Western Australia, this extends even further and aligns with the Digital Service Standards established by the Office of Digital Government.
