Designing and building accessible websites has become an integral part of my process when it comes to creating any website. I understand and follow accessibility guidelines in all sites I design.

As the web grows, it has become more important to create accessible sites, removing any barriers that people face. Some of these include confusing navigation, badly named and repetitive links, small target areas for clicks and bad colour contrasts. This can be a challenge for a designer, but with developments in html, xhtml, javascript etc. it has allowed designers like me to start using other ways to display information in an informative and engaging way.

It is now a legal requirement under the Disability Discrimination Act that organisations should take reasonable steps to make their sites accessible, so I follow this as best practice for all websites I design.
