Design Resources

These "Design Resources" are a series of short articles intended to provide designers with evidence-based information to address issues currently not covered in accessibility standards and provide suggestions for equivalent facilitation to accessibility standards where appropriate.

Work on these articles will be ongoing and new topics will be added regularly. Individual articles will be updated with new research and links to key external references as they become available, so please check back regularly.
