Introduction

Poorly designed applications are problematic for all users, but there are some design issues that are especially relevant to accessibility. This lesson covers accessible design issues best addressed in the early stages of application development, before programming.

In this lesson, you will learn about creating accessible link text, images, instructions, character sets and screen transitions. Since most of this accessibility work is conceptual and must be accomplished during the design stage, the technical part of this lesson focuses on testing for compliance.
