With the recent Ravelry debacle, there’s been much discussion about accessibility on the web. We all know by now that Ravelry is the example of what NOT to do and that most other websites do better. But I realized I don’t know anything about how accessible this blog is. I haven’t had any visual problems with the web EVER, so I have no idea what line spacing, fonts, white space, etc. that are accessible vs. inaccessible look like.
So, dear readers, how is this blog doing? Is WordPress a decent site for you? Is there somewhere else better I can host this blog?
I know one thing I can do is add image descriptions to all the photos I post and I can do that from now on.
How does this blog look for screen readers? I know literally nothing about how screen readers work.
Any other tips from WordPress users on how to make this blog easier to read for those with visual/neurological impairments? Is there certain formatting I’m not aware of? I always use the “Classic” block for the text because it’s the only one I know (I’m old and haven’t adapted to changes in the site).
Is there some sort of plain language guide out there to making blogs accessible?
