A little while ago I wrote about the importance of ensuring that you have accessibility on your web sites and applications. Here Ruth illustrates how to ensure that accessibility is considered within the design process. The following is a summary:

  • Research – Who are your users? Do they need an accessible site?
  • Design – Great design balances the user’s needs with the business’s needs.
  • Develop – Collaborate. Context is important.
  • Test – Three types of testing: automated, manual, and testing with people.
