|But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. (Luke 14:13)|
Accessible to all
Accessibility is the ease with which your site can be used by people with a variety of disabilities. It is common for church sites to have an accessibility policy but yet to have serious flaws which make them difficult for various people to use.
Designed for the Visually Impaired
One common example of such a flaw is using inappropriate font sizes and poor colour contrast. Many modern sites use a combination of small text and pastel colours. Matters are made worse when text is overlaid on images. Using small, light fonts looks trendy but makes the content difficult for visually impaired users to read.
Designed for Screen Readers
It is also common for church websites not to consider the needs of blind and mobility impared users that use a screen reader to browse the website. Screen readers rely on the page being laid out in a semantic manner and look for landmarks to navigate the page. HTML5 landmark elements are built into our sites by default. This allows screen reader users to distinguish between the parts of the page and easily skip to the main content.
Accessible by Default
When you use Thenoo your site will have been tested using the Axe accessibility validator and designed to be as accessible as possible.
