The WAI seeks to make the Internet more accessible to people with auditory, cognitive, neurological, physical, speech and visual impairments. This is largely accomplished through what the organisation calls “inclusive design”. This includes some of the following features:
- Providing text alternatives for non-text content
- Presenting the same content in different ways
- Ensuring content is easy to see and hear
- Designing pages so that content appears and operates in predictable ways
Tools are available to increase the text size throughout the website as well as change the contrast of the page.
