What can I do as a designer?

Just to clarify: Making a page accessible to everyone is not a one-man task. Designers have to think about things. Developers have to take action. Product people have to factor in accessibility.

On the following pages you’ll gain some insights into what you, as a designer, have to think about when designing a page. Remember: This is just a 101, an introduction to accessibility if you will.
