This page shows some core concepts of digital accessibility!
Anything that LOOKS like a heading to be MARKED as a heading. Think of it like making your table of contents. Table of Contents let you skip around a document. Headings do the same for people with disabilities who are using assistive technologies like screen readers and can’t see the visual differences of a heading.

Alt text depends on context.
This is my dog, Penny, upset that her cat brother, Dot, has stolen her bed so that she can’t sit next to me while I work.
Cats love to mess with dogs
Some complex images need more, such as alt text and a link to a longer description and/or data.
See data table and description.
Think alt text for links! Here is an example.
- This: CEC Professional Development Hours
- Not that: CEC Professional Development Hours
Let’s test the color contrast of a few things.
