How do people who can’t see a computer screen navigate a website? Colleen and her website designer, Cheryl, talk about basics of web design and programming for visually impaired users. Understand more about how blind people might experience the internet and learn how easy it can be to make your site accessible to more people. Colleen and Cheryl discuss the importance of Alt Text and labeling in images, tables, links and buttons, using headings to create a logical screen-reading experience, how overlays can make your site completely inaccessible, and how to size your elements.

Colleen also created this youtube video so you can see a common screen-reader in action. Watch the screen reader video.
