Accessibility

Hey guys, do there is a lot of people are building websites and apps, there’s some interesting websites out there but today i want to talk about accessibility.

Accessibility refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people who experience disabilities. The concept of accessible design and practice of accessible development ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology.

Web accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of removing barriers that prevent interaction with, or access to websites, by people with disabilities.

We Sometimes as developers get so caught up in writing code and building the Best UI/UX (User Interface/User Experience) but do we build a good user Experience. Below are some technologies that developers like using to gain some interesting visual effects.

We (and by we i mean web developers) have come across Parallax when designing websites but most of the time have we never think of how this affects some people who have cognitive or vestibular Disorders. Some of these effects in the past have proven to cause issues.

People with disabilities often find themselves in a struggle to have their human dignity acknowledged. They frequently are left in the shadows of technological advancements that are a source of empowerment and attainment for others.

Vestibular Disorders The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. these parts of your body can easily be affected by how your websites are designed.

Now I Might not have the Right answer to all these issues, so I’d suggest you have a listen to the Following Podcast by Scott Hanselman that goes in detail around the issue with Rachel Nabors.
