About inclusion

Sometimes you need to make your own visuals, slides, documents, videos and more. And I know how hard it can be to choose in this sea of visuals and tips.

As important as knowing if you colors go well together,
making sure everyone can read your text is too.

at least the WCAG AA !

Texts, fonts & typography

Always go for a sans-serif
Reading on screens is not optimal everytime.
Sometimes, you can't see how your peers experience that.

There is a simple way of maximizing that experience by using simple fonts and an adapted size.

To highlight important information, play with the text's size and thickness.
Minimize colors to call attention on any content.
Colors can be confusing for some, try using graphic elements.

This is a smaller title

Videos & subtitles

Make sure you have contrasted subtitles and/or a transcript.
Adding subtitles can help all of us :  from those with auditory disabilities to those who forgot their headphones at home.

You can use all of the advices above to be sure that they are inclusive : contrasted colors (white on black usually),
a sans-serif font and a adapted size of the text on the screen.
