Alternative Versions

Difficulty: Beginner


  • Principles

Building one version of a site that is highly accessible is the best approach to accessibility. Providing alternative versions or directing users to accessible or mobile versions of a site can be interpreted a segregation and separation, particularly if the content and functionality is not similar or equivalent to the main site. Statistics show that screen reader users are not likely to use this content anyway. A good site has full accessibility built in naturally, thus removing the need for alternative versions.
