Comment on Effective Web Design to Enhance Accessibility

Several days ago, I submitted a comment to the article Effective Web Design to Enhance Accessibility, which was recently going around Twitter. The comment wasn't published, so here it is:

Proper use of headings is another very important issue.
Comments on points above:
  1. Adequate font size by default is best; 16px ideal, 10 or 12 is unacceptable.
  2. Alternative text is a basic requirement that many folks still miss. Especially important on infographics (and comics!). If too long for alt attribute, just put text on page.
  3. Great point, but “link text” or “link content” may be better use of words. The “title” attribute (a.k.a. tooltip) should only be used for supplemental (and not duplicate) information.
  4. Symbols in addition to color is a good practice. In W3C words, “don’t rely on color alone to convey meaning”.
  5. Be sure to have a label for each form component (and associate correctly). Use Fieldset/Legend for long forms to break in sections.

The web design is an activity that involves planning, designing and implementing web sites. It is simply an application of conventional design, as it requires considering the navigability, interactivity, usability, information architecture and interaction of media such as audio, text, image, links and video.

To make a professional website,use white space as much as you can to create relief zones and provide contrast for the content and design elements.
