Do Accessible Web Sites Have to be Boring?By Bohman, Paul; WebAIM,
Publication Date: October 2003
Article discusses the use of graphics on websites to enhance accessibility by providing visual cues as to the meaning and organization of the content. Visual cues can help people to understand the content better, thus increasing accessibility. Even though people who are blind are not able to view the visible aspects of graphics, developers can provide alternative text that allows computer users who are blind or have low vision to access the content of graphics with screen reader software. The end result is a website that is pleasing to look at, is easy to understand, and which is accessible to people who are blind or have low vision.
