There are 7.4 billion people in the world, yet we often make things that are easy for some people to use but difficult for everyone else.  As designers, it is our responsibility to think about how we might design more inclusively for people of all abilities and to reflect the true diversity of the human race.

There are plenty of resources online to help you design with accessibility in mind, but to make it as simple as possible, I’m committing to constantly updating this list with resources I come across, so that you can get as much a11y goodness as possible in one place!

This list will be updated as I find new resources, so it might be a good idea to bookmark this page for easy access later.

PS. Got an accessibility resource to include here?

Please do comment with things that you feel could be added to this list! Thank you!

My great big list of accessibility resources!
