Client Success Updates 

Keep the accessibility of your website top of mind

As you work on your website ADA is always something you need to be aware of. Simple things can make a big difference to your site visitors, and things like Alternative Text are also helpful for search engine optimization.

Things to watch for as you make site updates:

  • Alternative Text - Images need alternative text since a visually impaired person cannot see the image.
  • Color Contrast - Make sure text is readable and remove potential contrast errors by adding a background color when you add images with text overlay.
  • Color Contrast also applies to Theme Editor. When you make template color changes, be sure to check color contrast for potential readability issues.
