Illustrations and Format

  • Provide contrast between text and pictures and their backgrounds. Black or very dark colors on white background offer greatest accessibility. Neon or light colors of text can be difficult to read
  • Make considerations related to print font and paper quality. Glossy pages can have a glare on the page that makes visibility more difficult. Sans Serif fonts with a minimum font size of 12 are more accessible. Some examples of Sans Serif fonts include Arial, Verdana, and Calibri, among others
  • Page layout is considered and is accessible for the intended audience (further information is available in the ability/challenge-specific criteria)
