The following is some useful guidance to consider when producing content for computer information screens to ensure they are as accessible as possible.
It is good practice to include onscreen contact details for someone users may contact if they are having problems with the accessibility of a screen.
Try and give at least two methods of contacting this individual, such as address and email, or email and phone number.
It is also important that screens are kept updated so that they display the latest information.
The format of your information is equally important:
There are also physical factors to consider.
Make sure you go and check the appearance of the screen in person rather than relying on the image you see on your screen when adjusting the boards - the two may be very different.
You should also ensure that the screen is situated at a height and angle where it can also be read by users in a wheelchair.
