# Making Web Content Accessible with A11y
Web accessibility is an important factor in creating an enjoyable user experience on the web. A11y, short for “accessibility,” is the practice of creating websites and web content that can be used by all users, regardless of their devices or disabilities. A11y can help make sure web content is available and easily understood to people of all abilities, not just sighted people.
## What is A11y?
A11y stands for “accessibility,” and it refers to the practice of making web content available, understandable, and navigable for all users. Accessibility is important for people with disabilities, but it also benefits other users by providing a more enjoyable, intuitive, and efficient experience on the web.
While some A11y features are involved in website building, such as using proper HTML elements, other features are more concerned with content itself. For example, writing clear headlines and descriptions for images, adding closed captions to videos, providing audio descriptions for visuals, and formatting text for easy reading.
## How to Implement A11y
When creating content, the goal is to make it accessible to all users, regardless of their disability or device. A few tips to help make your content more accessible with A11y are:
* **Mark Up Content Properly.** Use headings, lists, tables, and other markup to structure the content. The purpose of markup is to set expectations and give people an understanding of the content before they even read it.
* **Provide Descriptive Titles and Alt Text.** Titles and alt text give people access to images and other content. Alt text should accurately describe what appears in the image and titles should be both descriptive and meaningful.
* **Optimize for Mobile.** Make sure content is optimized for mobile devices. This means making sure the font size is easily legible and that touch targets are the correct size for users to easily navigate.
* **Use Colors Intelligently.** Colors help convey information, but you should avoid relying too heavily on them. For example, using only color to differentiate links from non-links can be a problem for many users. Try using different font styles, sizes, and weights to better convey the information or use labels alongside of the color-coding to make sure it is clear to everyone.
By implementing these A11y practices, you can create content that is accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
