Accessibility for Visual Design

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As designers, we need to remember that the same is true of color and all visual abilities. It’s estimated that 4.5% of the global population experience color blindness (that’s 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women), 4% suffer from low vision (1 in 30 people), and 0.6% are blind (1 in 188 people). It’s easy to forget that we’re designing for this group of users since most designers don’t experience such problems.

  1. I can sympathize with this article has to say. Even though it is minor, I do have vision difficulties, and the way the internet has been makes it not as welcoming for those with visual disabilities as it does for everyone else. In knowing this and trying to improve as a whole on how we design, how we operate, takes us one step further on making the internet as accessible as possible.
