Don't Click Here!

My first blog post for 2014 it is about a topic I am very passionate about, Web Accessibility.
Don't Click Here!

Adaptive Keyboard

About 10% of the world's population has some kind of disability and we as the Web Team and yourselves as web editors need to ensure that our websites are accessible.

Technically in the background there are many changes the Web team can make such as cascading style sheets changes, high-contrast style sheets, ARIA landmarks and so on, but there are also simple things you can do as an editor.

The quickest change you can make is to replace all your 'click heres' on your content page (or generic link text such as 'read more', 'this'). You maybe asking why you should make any changes. Just spend a few minutes watching the video below showing the problems users have when using screen readers such as JAWS, when reading text that isnt accessible.

'Click heres' are bad for accessibility, and we need to keep ensuring we keep building accessible websites that serve the important role of promoting a culture of inclusion.
