  • Use high-contrast color combinations to make the content easy to see and read. 
  • Make sure text size is adjustable and can be enlarged without losing content or functionality.

  • Make sure your site or app is fully functional when technologies like JavaScript are turned off. 
  • Test your project with different assistive technologies (like screen readers) and on different devices. 
  • Regularly test your project for accessibility issues.
