Hi. For web accessibility, it is important to take a balanced
approach. Don't make accessibility as a must do thingy, it must
be a priority. At the same time, having a page that is too
verbose in it's description can be a source of distraction. An
image is good for banner description, or a link that deserves
highlighting, or a point that is worth stressing, but not every
image needs a description in my opinion because your visitors are
more keen to get to the meat of your web site.s content. Cheers!

Hello, I’m taking a web development class.
The final project is to create a detailed web site. AS a blind
user I want to make this site as user friendly to screen
readers. I have some scenarios below. Please provide me with
feedback on what works for you.
Link has a graphic and there is no text.
Would you prefer just the link, text and graphic? Or it
doesn’t say there is a graphic and does say link and then text
telling you the use of the link.
There is a picture used for decorative
purposes. The screen reader recognizes the picture and says
graphic. Sometimes there will be text and other times no text.
Would you prefer the screen reader saying graphic and then the
text explaining the picture? Or just the graphic? Or nothing
When the graphics do have text do you like
it to be very detailed? Or is it okay to just say something
like “more information”? I say “more information as I have
seen this many times.
Those that use something to in large the
text, what colors work best for you when viewing a web site?
If you have any other comments about
problems you encounter on a web site let me know.
