Seven simple rules for web and digital accessibility

Accessibility is neither a last minute fix nor a “nice to have.” It must be intentional, integrated and valued. Here’s a framework for a state of mind.

  1. Have a clear business case for accessibility
  2. Plan for accessibility
  3. Specify the level you want and include it in any contract
  4. Hold developers, designers and content creators accountable for accessibility
  5. Work with an accessibility consultant from day 1
  6. Do some serious disabled user testing before going live
  7. Welcome, and respond positively to feedback as accessibility is maintained.
