Accessibility for designers

How do you design a website anyone can use? Which parts of the design process require extra attention, and which ones can be passed on to the developers?


This training consists of two parts. The first part deals with questions such as:

  • What is digital accessibility and for whom is it important?
  • In what different ways do individuals with disabilities visit your website? What aids do they use?
  • What obstacles do they encounter?
  • How can you avoid these obstacles (during the design process, among others)?
  • What practices are required by law?

The second part is a pragmatic overview of all of the crucial aspects of the design process:

  • Graphic design in general
    • Use of colour
    • Colour contrast for texts and non-textual elements
    • Visual indicators of state (focus, hover, etc)
    • Structure of contents (order, headings, etc)
    • Links
    • Forms
  • Navigation and structure of a website: skiplinks, expandable menus, sticky headers,...
  • Commonly used components: cards, tabs, modal dialogs, tooltips,...
  • Responsive web design: zoom, reflow, and orientation
  • Different interaction types: keyboard, pointer, motion activation,...
  • Movement and time limits

Target audience
