Vanilla aims to be as inclusive as possible.
While traditionally accessibility focuses on making the web more accessible for users with permanent disabilities, a focus on accessibility can deliver an improved user experience for everyone, including those with a temporary or circumstantial disability.
Accessibility should permeate the entire design and development process, rather than being something that you only think about after everything else has been defined and implemented.
You should focus on accessibility when you are:
- Writing your content (whether that’s words, images, videos or any other media format)
- Designing your patterns
- Building your patterns
While the accessibility of some of the existing Vanilla design patterns is still being improved, all new and updated patterns should meet WCAG 2.0’s level AA.
