Meghan Capiaghi and Amanda Weber recently shared how CadmiumCD’s Abstract Scorecard changes have made the product more accessible to users (watch the recording). We took all the great resources they mentioned and compiled them below.
1. Create Contrast on Your Site
Colors are an important factor for accessibility. To be truly accessible to those with visual impairments, your site must have a contract ratio of at least 4.5:1.
2. Use Instructional Language
3. Don’t Forget About PDFs
Do you share PDFs on your submission site? Any documents linked from your site must also meet accessibility standards outlined by the W3C’s WCAG 2.1 initiative.
