INDEX maintains these lists of accessibility resources to help the public make online content accessible.
Accessibility testing is an important part of usability testing. It ensures a web site can be enjoyed by seniors and by people who are blind or deaf; or who have cognitive disabilities, such as Dyslexia.
For people with cognitive disabilities, content has to be accessible too. It should be delivered in the way a person understands best, such as via video, text-to-speech, and/or simple language.
