Accessible Typography Essentials

A presentation at axe-con by Carie Fisher

When you’re designing a page, it’s essential to think about who your audience is — and that your audience may not have the same abilities as you. Making your documents accessible is not just about adding alternative descriptions to images; it’s about thinking through all the ways you can make your design work for as many people as possible. Join me as I explain the choices you can/should consider in an accessible visual presentation using text, such as font, color, contrast, size, column width, spacing, kerning, and more.
