Making your website accessible to everyone, and complying with the law.

It is increasingly easy for almost anyone to create and publish a website nowadays. However, there are many pitfalls for novices, and that is why there are nowa number of standards that professional website creators will adhere to.

Cracking the code

The code which underlies the site must be written correctly. It needs to work on both Mac and PC platforms; on all the different browsers such as Firefox or Safari and on different versions of each browser, such as Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8. This requires a considerable amount of expertise, especially as new versions of browsers are being launched all the time.

Staying on the right side of the law

It is now a legal requirement for websites to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act and to ensure that everyone has equal access to your site's content. This has far-reaching implications for the way your site is build and designed.

Did you realise that certain colours need to be avoided for text because they can be difficult for colour-blind people to read? Or that blind people have automated readers that will 'speak' a website's content to them, and this affects how a page should be constructed?
