Accessible front-end development ensures people can access, understand, and navigate online content, regardless of how they’re accessing it.

How to use your guide

  1. Follow the steps on each page. They aren't designed to be a list of everything you need to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). But they will cover some of the key things you need to know or do.
  2. Plan for accessibility and conduct accessibility testing throughout development.
  3. Take a short course - most are free. A great starting point is Web Accessibility by Google. It's free. In this course you’ll get hands-on experience making web applications accessible.
  4. Use the Web Accessibility Tutorials from World Wide Web Consortium (W3C as an ongoing reference. They provide guidance on how to meet WCAG.
  5. Join the community - get or give advice and support.
