3 Ways to Make Your Conference Website More Accessible

Meghan Capiaghi and Amanda Weber recently shared how CadmiumCD’s Abstract Scorecard changes have made the product more accessible to users (watch the recording). We took all the great resources they mentioned and compiled them below.

1. Create Contrast on Your Site

Colors are an important factor for accessibility. To be truly accessible to those with visual impairments, your site must have a contract ratio of at least 4.5:1.  

2. Use Instructional Language

“Click this Button” makes no sense to someone who uses voice commands. Get creative with your language to reflect a wider audience. “Use this button” may be more appropriate. 

3. Don’t Forget About PDFs

Do you share PDFs on your submission site? Any documents linked from your site must also meet accessibility standards outlined by the W3C’s WCAG 2.1 initiative.

Access the document for making your event submissions website more accessible.
