Web accessibility evaluation and improvements to include more people in the digital world

Project Philosophy

No one should be excluded from the experience of exploring the world through the Internet.


The number of online shoppers has been increasing year after year. More and more websites are making changes to ensure they are ADA-compliant in the US., as one of those, also does a really good job making their website as inclusive as possible. However, there are still some little details that need to be improved.

I launched the project with an accessibility evaluation to assess the accessibility issues that still exist on this website. The evaluation includes 30 of 50 WCAG 2.1 AA Success Criteria. A mockup will be delivered to show the potential UX design solutions based on the issues found during the evaluation process. Since it's not possible to remove all the problems from a UX designer’s perspective, accessibility annotations for other UX professionals used to guide further improvements are also provided.

Lessons Learned

Be practical

There are situations where aesthetics override functionality for the sake of emotional impact. However, to make the design not exclude anyone, accessibility should always be prioritized.

Be contextual

Designing for accessibility is subjective. It's always good to put ourselves in the user's shoes and see which solution works best for our users.

Be collaborative

It's not possible to achieve accessibility by only using the hand of designers. Being able to communicate with other UX professionals effectively is of vital importance.
