7 Questions to ask yourself before creating an accessible infographic
AMAZING accessibility podcast this week!!!
This week's podcast is truly an amazing goldmine of information if you struggle with creating accessible infographics? Chad Chelius, ADS and I walk through 7 Questions to ask yourself before creating an accessible infographic:
1. What do we want the user experience to be?
2. What is the most important information?
3. Does Content order matter?
4. Does color or line weight indicate additional information?
5. What is the volume of data? Alternate presentation?
6. Can I support the graphic with additional body text?
7. Can I test the user experience?
Stay tuned toward the end, where we talk about how certain bullets are voiced by JAWS and the info on how to download the PDF that lists a ton of them. I bet you will be surprised at more than a few.
I hope you find this podcast useful because it is definitely one of my new favorites we have recorded this year!
Which question did you like the most? I would love to hear your thoughts.
I am even considering making this a formal handout. Would you want something like that? If I get enough responses, I will make it happen.
