DESIGNING AN ACCESSIBLE AND USABLE INTERNET

Barrier-free web design is the art of designing websites in such a manner that anyone can use and read them. It takes very particular measures into consideration that make it possible for people with impediments to orient themselves on a website and understand all its contents. The term “barrier-free” therefore stands for increased accessibility. Accordingly, a barrier-free website offers all sorts of advantages.

ADVANTAGES OF A BARRIER-FREE WEBSITE

  • Barrier-free websites are technologically advanced, conform to W3C and valid for CSS.
  • Barrier-free web design ensures optimal usability by means of proper and well-contemplated accessibility.
  • Barrier-free websites profit from advantages regarding search engine rankings.

The advantages for website visitors are provided by simple and intuitive navigation, faster browser loading times thanks to optimised HTML source codes and screen reader suitability.

Moreover, an economic benefit arises from using a barrier-free website, too, since the more people that can visit and use a website, the more successful the online presence is, so everyone benefits from a barrier-free website.

In order to design a barrier-free website, it has to correspond to a series of measures in terms of the WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), in addition to fulfilling the generally known basic requirements, like high contrast or optimal readability of the contents, to be considered barrier-free.

100% accessibility does not exist, though!
