DA Webinar – Intro to Digital Accessibility for Designers

11.30-1pm – 22 September 2021 – Dr Chandra Harrison, Managing Director, Access Advisors

Ensuring your designs are accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities and access needs may feel a little daunting. But paying attention to accessibility is well worth it in the end when you know that it makes your product better and more useful to everyone. In this session we will introduce digital accessibility and give you five things to specifically consider when you are designing for people with access needs. We will also provide notes about the five key tips.

  1. Colour contrast – why and how
  2. Using colour to convey information
  3. Font – size, type, alignment
  4. Headings and visual hierarchy
  5. Proximity and white space
