Form Design

Interactive pages, including forms, can be a major barrier for users, especially those on a screen reader. Issues for navigating forms and interactive pages include:

  1. Adding a title to the form
  2. Titling all of the form fields
  3. Adding Alt Text to any added images
  4. Making sure all added video has Captions
  5. Ensure that any colors used in a theme have sufficient color contrast, particularly for text entry fields and buttons/checkboxes.

No matter what platform a form is created in, these guidelines should be implemented.
