Dos and Don’ts of Accessible Design

This is a really nice set of posters from Gov.uk on the ways to make intelligent design choices for users with different types of needs. And even better, they’ve also provided the full text for people who find images harder to access. (It’s almost like they’re really thoughtful about this stuff…)

Personally I found the deaf and hard-of-hearing list of “Do”s pretty interesting:

Do

  • write in plain English
  • use subtitles or provide transcripts for video
  • use a linear, logical layout
  • break up content with sub-headings, images and videos
  • let users ask for their preferred communication support when booking appointments
