Guide to help staff make their content accessible to all users

What is accessibility?

Accessibility is about making sure users with disabilities can still access all relevant content.

For example, if a user is visually impaired, they may not be able to see graphs well or at all, so we need to make sure there is a way they can still get the information they need from the graph.

If you have any questions about accessibility or anything in this guide, please contact Dhruti Bhagat-Conway.
