Creating Accessible Content and Websites

Digital accessibility expands beyond the subsections below. You can use best practices in your everday life when writing emails or making a social media post. Apply the general guidelines below to all digital content or find application-specific guidelines.

Five Best Practices for All Digital Content

  1. Use alt tag descriptions for images.  
  2. Use descriptive links that make sense out of context instead of text like "see more" or "click here." 
  3. Use headings to organize your content and make sure they are used in the correct order.
  4. Designate row and/or column headers when using a table.
  5. Always add closed captioning to videos.
