  • Inclusive design is a web design approach that strives to enable and accommodate human diversity, including disabilities and impairments. The goal is to design to enable multiple methods to access the same functionality.
  • Web accessibility is the end result of the inclusive design process.
  • Usability makes web experiences easy to use and intuitive.
  • WCAG 2.0 became an official recommendation in 2008. 

Accessibility Principles

  • Perceivable – information and UI is presented to users in ways they can perceive.
  • Operable – UI and navigation must be operable.
  • Understandable – information and the operation of the UI must be understandable.
  • Robust – Content must be interpreted reliably in a variety of user agents including assistive technologies.
