Experts: Dmytro Popov, Alla Oliinyk, Yevhenii Shykiriavyi

How to make a design for the blind and people with motor impairments? Here you will find detailed instructions on how to create an inclusive website, electronic document, or mobile application.

 

The main focus of the educational series is on designing a website according to WCAG standards for an audience with low vision, visual or motor impairments. Listen to an overview of how screen readers work and get started with creating your design.

 

In the series, experts will take a step-by-step look at how to adapt non-textual content and multimedia, manage color and contrast, and simplify navigation for keyboard users. Learn how to properly organize materials, name documents and elements of the website or app structure, and write readable texts for users with cognitive disabilities.

 

With these recommendations, it's easy to make websites barrier-free for people with limited mobility.

 

The series was developed at the initiative of the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine for the Diia.Education platform with the support of the Digital, Inclusive, Accessible: Supporting the Digitalization of Public Services in Ukraine Project (Diia Support Project) implemented by the United Nations Development Program in Ukraine with financial support from Sweden.
