Appendix: Accessibility


This page will describe how to markup your page with semantic HTML that will allow readers using assistive technology to easily navigate your content.

Why are we making sure that content can be reviewed by everyone? Because of course you want to reach the most users in the most equitable way, but also so that your website conforms to the British Columbia’s Accessibility Directorate. Accessibility standards are currently being developed that will address both removing barriers and preventing them from being created in a document (“born accessible”)
