Accessible LibGuides are well structured and follow a logical reading order. This helps users with screen readers access your content. Presenting content in a logical reading order also benefits patrons accessing your guide via the mobile version of LibGuides, which presents content in a single column.
LibGuides are already fairly accessible, but can be made even more so by using these tips:
When you embed media, such as a video, Google form or search widget into your guide, LibGuides uses a "container" called an iframe to display the media on your page. One way to make iframes more accessible is to add a title, so that the user knows what he or she has encountered on the page.
LibGuides does not automatically assign meaningful titles to iframes, but you can do so yourself when embedding media into your guide. This is a quick bit of text that you will add directly into beginning of the embed code.
Paste directly after the word "iframe" at the beginning of your embed code.
title=”replace this text with a descriptive title of your media”
These examples show the unmediated code, and a more accessible mediated version where a descriptive title was added.
