Building For Accessibility

Building for Accessibility

Series Eight aims for websites we develop to meet the accessibility standard WCAG 2.1 at a minimum of AA level. Most sites won't be certified to WCAG standards unless required to, but we should aim for at least AA where possible.

This document covers a few things to watch out for and common issues you will need to deal with whilst developing a website. It is accompanied by the Testing for Accessibility document (in-progress) which explains how we can test the accessibility of our sites using automated tools and manual processes.

To see a table of contents of this document, see this guide.


We will be hosting a workshop on accessibility building and testing for developers, in addition to one for designers. When complete the recording will also be available here.
