Stef van Hooijdonk for Coolblue

Posted on


Web accessibility a.k.a a11y refers to the universal ability of different users and devices to access the content and features of a website, regardless of physical or cognitive ability.

In other words, web accessibility ensures that everyone can successfully use a website, including users who are blind, color blind; deaf or hard of hearing, as well as users who have difficulty using their hands or have other disabilities.

What does it mean for Coolblue

We want to adhere to the W3Cā€™s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1

You can find a comprehensive checklist in Coolblue design system guidelines (internal).
