Web Accessibility Content Guidelines and policies like the American Disability Act and forthcoming European Accessibility Act help businesses design digital products with inclusion and accessibility in mind.

  • The user-centred approach to accessibility: Understanding individual user needs based on a spectrum of permanent, temporary and situational disabilities
  • What is good usability: The details of good universal design (from colour contrast and internal linking to language, fonts and video content)
