Making Websites Accessible


Your website is the public face of your organisation.  It brings together all the information you want to provide to your customers and potential customers.  It:

  • provides in-depth information about your services;
  • allows users to download information for their own use;
  • provides access to all your social networking and blogging activity; and
  • allows users to interact in various ways with your organisation.

Making your website accessible at the design stage is good practice and will help to ensure that as many people as possible can access your information.

These guidelines will help to create a structurally accessible website.  They do not cover content. General guidelines on the accessibility of printed and electronic documents can be found on the Disability Information Scotland Website.
