Determine your audience

If it is used by all of the students at a university, an inaccessible website could put the university at risk for litigation. But regardless of how big or small your audience is, we should strive to make all our web pages accessible.

Start any new project with accessibility in mind

If you start your project by making accessibility a priority, it will make it easier in the long run to not have to test and fix larger problems.

Educate your team and designate time to test for accessibility

Make sure team members are aware of testing tools, and give them enough time to perform tests on your website.

Provide a way for users with disabilities to communicate any problems with your site

Keep lines of communication open, and make it easy for users to contact you.

Test your site frequently

Take advantage of accessibility testing tools during the developmental stages of the project. Even after the site is up and running, test it early and often.
