At a high-level, these are the general areas of consideration that website content editors should pay attention to when creating content. Each Element has further detail in its own section



Accessibility Consideration

1. Images

Upload of Image Files to a Content Type and/or the WYSIWYG

Provide alternative text to images via the alt-text field.

2. Headings

Add Body Content and structuring the content using Heading styles in the WYSIWYG.

Headings are used for reading structure, not styling, and are presented in logical order.

3. Links

Insert Links using the WYSIWYG and structuring the links to be contextually relevant.

Avoid links such as “Click Here” or “Read More” but to provide greater detail and context.

4. Lists

Use proper list markup with the “list” buttons (Numbers or Bullets)

When presenting content in a list manner, use either the numbered icon or bullet icon of the WYSIWYG.

5. Tables

Organize data in tabular manner within the WYSIWYG

Tables are properly structured with headings.

6. Multimedia & Audio

Upload a Media file to the WCMS or embedding Media within the WYSIWYG.

Textual alternatives to the multimedia by way of caption tracks and/or transcripts.

7. Charts and Graphs

Upload an image that is a chart, or pasting in an image file that has a chart or graphical component.

Consider a long description to fully describe the data, or add a table to the content to allow the user to interpret data.
