Navigating websites can be quite challenging for people who rely on assistive technology. On this website we will illustrate the most common accessibility problems and challenges that can be found online. Use links on the left to learn more about web page elements in which these challenges typically occur.

Each problem is demonstrated by "good" and "bad" examples:

Bad Example

Bad examples illustrate incorrect use of HTML and/or Javascript code.

Good Example

Good examples demonstrate how similar results can be achieved without compromising accessibility.

It is recommended that you use a screen reader application, or one of the popular accessibility browser plugins, e.g., ChromeVox, WAVE, etc. to test them.
