One of the rules that guide the design found on the Internet is that every online website must be open to anyone who visits. accessible website design is a set of principles aimed at promoting this idea, the development of web sites accessible to all users regardless of how they use the Internet, or even their physical or technical.
Understanding the importance of this principle requires a certain amount of consideration for hypothetical situations. Perhaps the most crucial of these is to consider the needs of people who visit your website is perceived in the same way as you? Will they be able to use all the features you trust?
This is where web design differs from the abstract ideal affordable creative design – practical considerations of potential end users.
Consider for example, how the death or hard of hearing will interact with your website if you do the audio data a central part of its design. For the same reason as attractive as might be to run wild with subtle color variations in their elements on the page, color-blind user will probably completely unreadable.
Simple measures such as the introduction of redundancy measures for elements of web design can help users of any ability to access your site. For example, instead of relying solely on audio signals is only possible to include descriptions of text or image. It could also offer different versions of your site for those who have problems with it – a page showing all the complex elements of intelligent design and a simple page that contains the information, but it is not possible to confuse or illegible designs.
At the heart of it, accessible web design is based on the principles of universalism that form the idealistic side of the network – the information must be available to all persons regardless of any other consideration. However, there are sound economic reasons as well, with a worldwide audience, the skills of the people who come to a website are not entirely predictable.
When you consider that 10-20% of the population in most countries will have some physical disability, it is likely that allowing accessible design of your website can lose a substantial part of the audience of potential customers. Depending on their content sites, this could be devastating, especially when including the number of users whose skills have deteriorated with age.
In addition, accessible web design is largely a matter of doing a simple web page, which contains all relevant information and can be easy to navigate – where strange and potentially confusing aspects are removed. This may hamper the ability of creative design, but if done right, can be the perfect complement to a website full of complex elements of complex design.
For example, a simple Web site can help make the site accessible to users on the various types of electronic device, using different software or users in less than ideal (noisy, bright, dark, etc) environments – or perhaps more importantly, questions of users of low bandwidth.
