Accessible, Responsive Website Design
Jim Byrne Web Designer

Design for machines first, people second!

You can’t transmit your web page directly to a person’s brain; it’s got to be transmitted through some type of hardware and software first (for example, a web browser on your phone).

Visitors won’t be able to access your content if your pages won’t work on the particular browser they are using — be it a refreshable braille reader, WebTV, or the latest PC still running buggy Internet Explorer 6 — the secret to success is to ‘code to standards’.

If you code to standards for example, HTML 4.01 or XHTML 1, HTML 5 – the actual standard you choose matters less than you might think — you have the best chance of your web page working on the ‘dumb’ machines that know nothing other than ‘how to follow the rules’. If you also follow the rules, you are already well down the road towards an accessible website.
