It's a Start: You're Already Doing More for Accessibility Than You Think

Casey Naiduk, Head of Content and Experience
Digital accessibility is often talked about in absolutes — something is accessible or it isn't, you either know how to "do" accessibility or you don't. This month I'd challenge you to leave that thinking behind and to recognize that you're probably already doing more for accessibility than you think. You just need to build on it. If you're already adding alt text to your images, keep doing it and learn how to do it better. If you tag elements as lists or headings, it's a start. You're impacting accessibility already and you're probably getting more of it right than you think. Keep learning. Keep building. Every improvement is worthwhile.
