Accessible Infographics

How did we do it?

We have been sharing our infographic about digital accessibility on our social channels for a while, and some people have asked us how we created our infographic, and made it accessible.

The infographic we designed was constructed in an Adobe software program called InDesign. InDesign allows us to work seamlessly with Adobe Acrobat to export an accessible file.

InDesign allows you to add header tags to create structure and a logical reading order for the infographic text. It also allows us to add alt tags which helps to describe images to those who are visually impaired. Once the infographic is exported into a pdf, Adobe Acrobat helps make it possible to view the infographic using assistive technology such as screen readers and screen magnifiers.
