How can you take all that information about accessibility, sift through it, and change what you’re doing right now, this week? Where do you even begin?

Accessibility is not trivial—it’s incredibly meaningful. And, it’s big, very big. Seriously, you can spend days reading, researching, testing, and discussing the potential impact of one attribute or technique on users. And, that’s a worthwhile pursuit. But, if you’re new to this topic, accessibility can also feel truly overwhelming, too big. How can you take all that information about accessibility, sift through it, and change what you’re doing right now, this week? Where do you even begin? We want to help with that.

The Simply Accessible team has assembled a collection of established usability and accessibility best practices that you can use today, techniques that will provide measurable benefit to your users and reduce your web team’s burden. Each week, we will post a new one for you. More than a checklist that doesn’t give you the why, and less than a whole book that you read cover to cover before you can even start using it, these best practices are small but robust. They’re portable and easy to carry. Take them and run with them.
