At its core, Digital Accessibility is about inclusiveness and meeting our user’s needs by making all digital content accessible to everyone. We achieve this by ensuring all digital content we create is Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust, commonly known as the 4 Principles of Accessibility:
1. Perceivable – users must be able to perceive the information being presented. (it can’t be invisible to all of their senses)
2. Operable – users must be able to operate the interface. (the interface cannot require interaction that a user is unable to perform)
3. Understandable – users must be able to understand the information as well as the operation of the user interface. (the content or operation cannot be beyond their understanding)
4. Robust – Content must be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of web browsers and assistive technologies.
