Accessibility: Why care?

  • Convenient layouts.
  • Right-sized elements.
  • Predictable updates.
  • Contrast colors.
  • Clear button icons and names.
  • Intuitive navigation.
  • Voice- or gesture-driven control.

Does this list sound like luxury? Well, it shouldn't. Such features will make the web/app experience much better for so many users.

For example, Dutch people did a little research about it and found out (not surprising at all, really) that 43% of users apply at least one accessibility feature for their convenience.

These features are:

  • Adjust text size – 32.62 %
  • Dark mode – 26.79%
  • Zoom – 7 %
  • Bold text – 6.86 %
  • Shake to undo – 6.14 %
  • Speak selection – 4.19 %
  • Reduce transparency – 3.41 %

Accessibility for content, software, and interfaces is a critical issue nowadays. It affects every one of us at some point of our lives. This is the main reason why you should think about your product's accessibility today.
