  • Changing a div to an article/section can make a huge difference (Semantic HTML )

  • Use h1 – h6 for anything that is a header to notify screen readers about the page sections

  • Use links for navigation

  • Handle all On-click functions with a button

  • If an element is off-screen, ensure that its visibility is set to hidden

  • Making good use of ARIA which helps to add a semantic behavior to an element that isn’t implicitly semantic

  • Labeling buttons to give additional information on what the button does

The awesome thing about the web is that it was made for everyone to share and access information with EASE. Now the elephant in the room is, does your platform on the web conform to this simple goal? How globalized is your platform really? What are you missing? You might say “It looks good so I’m guessing it works perfectly” . Not exactly! In this talk we will be focusing on key, easy to implement ways to make your platform accommodate and prepare for the next billion users, you‘ve never met.
