What is Web accessibility?

Web accessibility is the practice of designing and developing websites that are accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities. This includes making sure that the site is easy to use and navigate for users with visual, auditory, motor, and cognitive impairments.

What is Teamtailor doing for Web accessibility?

Teamtailor strives to make your career site accessible by default and has conducted an accessibility audit of the career site building blocks to make sure the candidate facing UI conform with WCAG 2.1 AA. The audit was done in partnership with Axess Lab in late 2022.

What can you do?

It’s Teamtailor’s aim to make it as easy as possible for you to ensure your career site is accessible. Here are some recommendations you might want to follow when working on the accessibility of your career site:

  1. Use colors with good contrast. For example, make sure the background and text color has good contrast and is easy to read.

    💡 Don’t worry, the system will show you a helpful heads-up if you’ve added colors with a low contrast.

  2. Use clear and descriptive headings and subheadings to help users understand the content and structure of the page.
