ARTICLE SUMMARY: We are designers, and what do designers do? We improve things, we seek to make life better for all, that’s what we do.

One of the things designers are focusing on more and more is accessibility for all, it’s time is long overdue.

As we ring in the New Year Daniel Berryhill gives us “5 ways to improve Accessibility in 2024” to help us be more inclusive in our everyday designs. Some his recommendations include

  • Reach out to accessibility personnel
  • Cross-train
  • Start using a screen reader

Improving accessibility is an ongoing process that involves making technology, environments, and information more usable and available to everyone, regardless of their abilities or disabilities.

With accessibility it’s not a one-time effort; it requires continuous commitment and improvement. By incorporating these strategies and staying informed about emerging technologies and best practices, it is possible to create a more inclusive and accessible future for all.

Not only will accessibility expand our consumer reach, it’s just good business and the right thing to do.
