• Use fonts that are more legible (e.g., Arial, Calibri, Georgia, Helvetica, Tahoma, Verdana).
• Check color contrast between text and background (tip: use the Color Contrast Checker on the WebAIM site).
• Use active hyperlinks that have descriptive anchor text indicating where the link leads.
• If using mathematical equations, create them using LaTex or an editor (such as MathType) that converts to MathML.
• For tables, use table headers for rows and columns, use captions for table titles, and avoid merged cells.
• When formatting, rather than relying on bold and italics to delineate sections and headers, use formatting tools within text editing applications to create headers, sections, and lists.
Four principles: “perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust.”
