Accessibility, a must for UX

Accessibility is the design of products, services, and environments so that they can be accessed, understood, and used by as many people as possible.


Accessibility is important for any product design because it ensures that all individuals, including those with disabilities, can effectively use and interact with the product. Accessibility is mandatory in UX design because it ensures that all users can access and use a product, regardless of their abilities. This can be achieved by following accessibility guidelines and best practices.



There are many aspects of accessibility to consider when designing a product. Here are a few of the most important:

  • Visual: Make sure that all text is readable and that images and videos have alternative text.

  • Auditory: Make sure that all audio content is understandable and that there are transcripts available for any videos or podcasts.

  • Physical: Make sure that all controls are easy to reach and use, and that there is a way to navigate the product without a mouse or keyboard.

  • Cognitive: Make sure that the product is easy to understand and use, and that there are clear instructions and help available.

Following accessibility principles and making your products more accessible, you can reach a wider audience and increase your profits.
