At Nomensa, we're passionate about accessibility and believe the web should be inclusive to anyone and everyone.
We've put together an infographic based on the W3C's ten easy checks. While this is by no means an extensive checklist, we hope it will help when considering the first steps that can be taken in order to ensure your website is accessible.
Here is the long description of the PDF.
