WCAG, breaking down barriers to make pages accessible.

To this end, there are guidelines aimed at Web site developers and designers, developers of authoring tools for Web site design and programming, developers of Web accessibility evaluation tools and anyone who needs a reference standard with which to check the accessibility of certain Web content.

Some specific examples that increase accessibility are listed below:

  • In text, with extra large font size, Braille, spoken text, sign language, or simpler language.
  • In the audio or video, taking advantage of the possibility of including alternative text. For example, in the case of images, the alt attribute allows to include a description of the image content in text mode, which browsers specially adapted for people with visual disabilities can read aloud. Also, YouTube allows the addition of subtitle files to videos, so that people with hearing disabilities can read the audio content of the video as text. 
  • On the keyboard, implementing functionalities that can be accessed from the keyboard itself.
  • By distinguishing and adapting, so that users can see or hear the content while avoiding designs with reduced font sizes or grey text on a white background that makes reading difficult.
  • Providing enough time for users to read or use the content properly.
Navigability, to make content easy to find, self-filling certain data into applications, and compatibility with current browsers and the inclusion of assistive technologies are other examples of actions on the road to accessibility.
An accessible site enhances equal opportunities and the right to access to information, reaches a greater number of users and customers, saves bandwidth usage, improves positioning and demonstrates greater corporate social responsibility of the company.
