About the book

Making learning and development (L&D) content inclusive and accessible for all employees is not only a good thing to do, it's the right thing to do. Designing Accessible Learning Content provides evidence-based advice on designing content that works for everyone.

This is a practical guide for L&D professionals, instructional designers and course developers which provides evidence-based advice on how to create content that is accessible to everyone. This allows all employees to develop their skills and knowledge in order to perform to their full potential.

There is specific guidance on the visual design of content which covers colour, contrast, font and spacing through to headings, labels and hierarchies. There is also expert guidance on how to make interaction and functionality accessible for all, with instruction on quiz and input fields.

Designing Accessible Learning Content addresses all media and format types found in learning resources and shows how to make them accessible with audio description, live and pre-recorded captions as well as 'alt text'. Aligned to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), this is essential reading for L&D professionals needing to ensure they comply with industry requirements and make their content as effective as possible for improving individual and consequently business performance. Online resources include supporting checklists for creating accessible learning content.
