Formatting for accessibility

Following the guidance in this section will ensure your content meets accessibility guidelines.

Readers with low English fluency may not be familiar with some punctuation. Readers who are multitasking or in a hurry may not have time to decipher inconsistently formatted content. Assistive technologies such as screen readers can struggle with some formatting.

To make reading easier we should present information in a clear and uncluttered way. Using consistent formatting helps us to build trust and authority.
