Header Order


WCAG AA suggests that Headers only be placed in order. This means that when creating headers and sub headers do not skip from H1 to H3, they should be placed in sequence so that assistive devices or users do not think they have missed some content on the page. Please note that the page includes the Page Title as an H1 tag. Also, do NOT use a header in replacement for bold text!

Link Text


Be sure that if you are including a link, that the link is not just labeled "here" or "click here." Link text should be descriptive of the link that it is associated with.

Example: Please see more information about how to use link text on the W3 website.

Font Colors


Ensure that all font color you have chosen to be on your page meet the 4.5:1 contrast ratio and have a 3:1 contrast ratio to surrounding text if included in a paragraph.

Use the Color Contrast Determinator utility to help determine what is acceptable.

Attached and Linked Documents


Be sure that all documents linked to and attached that are PDF's or Office documents are compliant to Accessibility standards. More details are located on Answers.

Videos, Audio and Embedded Content


Be sure that any embedded videos, or audio have captions or transcripts of what is included. More details about captions is located on Answers.

Any Embedded content using iFrames or Scripts should also be compliant. This includes video embeds and survey forms.
