3 Tips for Accessible Emails

  1. Use Headers. If you use headers screen reader users are able to work out the hierarchy of the page.

  2. Use contrasting colours for backgrounds and text. Some colours might look nice but don't work in terms of readability for visually impaired users.

  3. Use meaningful link text. If you label a hyperlink with "click here" it doesn't really help anyone let along people with cognitive or visual impairments.
