Ultimate checklist for making your plugin accessible

HTML code semantics

Following HTML code semantics is fundamental in making your web applications accessible because assistive technologies, like screen readers, rely on the code to transmit the correct information to the user.

Forms are communly inaccurate due to a lack of the label tag or the misuse of the input fields.(Check out the W3C for forms in HTML4 or W3C for forms in HTML5.)

Another commun mistakes involves data tables weither by not structuring your table with the proper elements or  by adding visual attributes that should go in the CSS, (Check out W3C for tables in HTML4 or W3C for tables in HTML5.)

Follow W3C standards to the letter and you will have a good start.

Use CSS

To keep the integrity of your code separate content from presentation. In the case of a data table, attributes like cellspacing and cellpadding should be replaced by padding of the td element in your css file. This will allow users to strip down the visuals to suit their own needs.

Tabbed Navigation

Many users use only the tab key to navigate within a web browser and webpage, because they cannot use a mouse (in case of limited motor skills or blindness).

Colour contrast

There are many tools to help you choose the appropriate colour contrasts between background and foreground of your text.

A proper ratio of luminosity assures that users with visibility issues can clearly see differences between elements. Think of users with colourblindness or eye sensitivity.

WAI-ARIA attributes

If you want to go a step further and you are coding in HTML5, you can use ARIA attributes to compliment all previous steps. WAI-ARIA is a set of elements that give extra code information to assistive technologies.

    have THREE of their great grandparents (at 91, 93, and 93 years old), one of my
    great wishes in life was that my maternal grandma would have
    met my children. I had always dreamed that I would have a 4
    generations of women picture, like one that I
    have on my dresser at home of my maternal great grandma, maternal grandma, mom, and myself.

    your boss to comply with the law is not usually grounds
    for termination). Best case scenario she changes and you

    As such they should been fleshed out like actual characters.
    Morgan and its peers due to its smaller presence in the highly volatile
    investment banking segment. That probably explains why Wells Fargo was
    able to not only grow its EPS this quarter by
    17% year over year, but also grow its revenues by 4.4% and its pre tax pre provision profit by 12%.
    JPM was able to shrug off the non recurring trading loss with other one time gains, but still managed to post a disappointing 9% EPS decline
    and a shocking 17% decline in revenue. Tankini Swimwear

    is the 1 concern people bring up when I get on this spiel.

    In fact, whenever I reveal that I made something I wearing, 80% of

    and yet I still thrown by it. For some reason, it a baffling question to
    me, and I ponder this a lot. one piece swimsuits

    of the “bleeding” Beyond Burger is testing the new product at Whole Foods.
    Assuming cultured meat doesn’t hit any sort of regulatory hurdles, we might be just a few years out from traditional meat, plant based meat and lab grown meat all being equally commercially viable from a cost standpoint.
    Suddenly, consumers would have a lot of options when it comes

    Bring gum or mints. I definitely more like you, and I dated guys in the past that need more “obvious” (their
    word) demonstrations. I can mainly just empathize with you, but here are some things my guy friends
    have done for their girlfriends with great success: send
