Other Tips

      1. Organize and structure the content to help users navigate the page, determine where they are, and find the content they want:
        • Use "Heading 1/2/3" paragraph styles, instead of different font sizes, to indicate structure and hierarchy.
      2. Provide transcripts for all audio.
        • The transcript must be available for hearing impaired individuals.
        • Caption all video.
            • At a minimum provide the text to be used for captioning, or better, provide an already captioned video. Captioning ensures that deaf or hearing impaired individuals can use the video.
            • Don't use color as the only way to indicate meaning.
              • The classic example is a green button for "go" and a red button for "stop." However, a colorblind individual may not be able to distinguish the buttons, and a screen reader can't interpret the colors. To remedy this situation, use shapes or text to distinguish buttons, and provide alt text that can be read by the screen reader.
              • Create tables that can be understood when read line-by-line.
                • Pre-plan for accommodation needs with timed content.
                  • Some disabled users may need more time to navigate and access the material. Ensure there will be an option to extend time limits.
                  • Write concise and logical text. 
                    • Screen reader users can save time and frustration if the text is short and to the point. Follow Web writing tips to keep text concise.
