One of our core values at Gliss is accessibility. We work to ensure each client's website and branding are accessible and easy-to-enjoy by your current and soon-to-be customers and clients.
Website accessibility is a big topic (and one that we love discussing), and while it can feel daunting at first, rest assured that your efforts will pay off. Accessible websites get more love from Google, are easier to navigate, and help ensure that you are connecting to as many potential clients as possible.
Below are 5 ways you can make your website more accessible.
Use descriptive alt text for images: This will help those who use assistive technology, such as screen readers, to understand what your image is conveying.
Ensure proper color contrast: Make sure the text and background colors have high contrast to make it easier for people with visual impairments to read. We talked about this more in a previous blog.
Provide captions and transcripts for videos and other multimedia. This will help people with hearing impairments, or those who like to keep their audio muted, to understand your carefully curated content.
Use clear and easy-to-read fonts: Avoid using complex fonts or fonts that are difficult to read, as it can make it hard for people with cognitive and visual disabilities to read, and can cause strain on the eye.
Make sure your website is keyboard-friendly: This will help those who cannot use a mouse or touch screen to navigate your website with ease.
