Inclusive design and building websites accessible

I'm looking to learn a bit more into web accessibility as I know it has been a growing concern over the last few years, obviously from and inclusion standpoint but also now from a legal perspective.

Are there any GO-TO tools people use to aid in this process? If so, what are the strengths/weaknesses of these tools? What would make the life of a developer easier when it comes to building a website accessible from the ground up?

Thanks in advance for your replies and input - much appreciated :) Cheers

I am posting constantly about web accessibility, so feel free to follow along (mostly on but I am trying to keep my codenewbie account up2date as well). I hope, you will find what you are looking for.

Start using Lighthouse Extension. It is a great start to get into accessibility testing and what to look for in making the website more accessible. For more advanced experience axe Dev Tools would be the best choice (with many other extensions for various reasons).

Feel free to reach out any time :)

Inclusive design is about making sure that everyone can access the information you're trying to share. It means making sure that your website is easy for anyone to use, whether they're using a mobile device or an older technology like a computer. Visit this site to download best templates. You might need to use different images or color schemes because some people have different visual impairments, or you might want to put a skip button on all videos so those who are hard of hearing can skip over them.

Developing software is one of the most challenging careers that you can have. It involves learning new programming languages and tools, and also figuring out how to make your software more efficient. A software developer can have a huge impact on society. They develop software that can improve people’s lives and make their jobs easier. So check my essay about it that I wrote with the help of service.
