When you browse your favorite website or check the latest version of your product on your device of choice, take a moment to look at it differently. Can you still see and use the website? In this article, I’ll share one aspect of design accessibility: making sure that the look and feel (the visual design of the content) are sufficiently inclusive of differently sighted users. I am a design consultant on PayPal’s accessibility team. Further Reading on SmashingMag: Link I created our “Designers’ Accessibility Checklist,” and I will cover one of the most impactful guidelines on the checklist in this article: making sure that there is sufficient color contrast for all content.

All of the text of this specification is normative except sections explicitly marked as non-normative, examples, and notes. [RFC2119] Examples in this specification are introduced with the words “for example” or are set apart from the normative text with class="example", like this: Informative notes begin with the word “Note” and are set apart from the normative text with class="note", like this: Note, this is an informative note. This specification defines a number of procedures. Some procedures assert an invariant condition.

Accessibility Many Android users have different abilities that require them to interact with their Android devices in different ways. These include users who have visual, physical or age-related limitations that prevent them from fully seeing or using a touchscreen, and users with hearing loss who may not be able to perceive audible information and alerts. Android provides accessibility features and services for helping these users navigate their devices more easily, including text-to-speech, haptic feedback, gesture navigation, trackball and directional-pad navigation. Android application developers can take advantage of these services to make their applications more accessible. Android developers can also build their own accessibility services, which can provide enhanced usability features such as audio prompting, physical feedback, and alternative navigation modes. The following topics show you how to use the Android framework to make applications more accessible. Making Applications Accessible

Fast forward to modern times: the keyboard remains a key element in ensuring that people with disabilities are able to communicate and engage in everyday activities. As our communication technologies advance and we become increasingly reliant on websites and apps to facilitate our interpersonal interactions, we must not forget the critical role of the keyboard. This is the first of two articles in which we’ll look at why and how to provide an accessible, enjoyable experience for people who use the keyboard to work with websites and applications.
