DIGITAL ACCESSIBILITY

  • Caption and Alt Text​

    Images or videos used on social media, websites, and other digital applications should have alt- text written. This ensures accessibility to the content of the image or video to people with visual impairment. For Instagram specifically the alt-text functionality doesn’t work for all individuals, so an image/video description should be used at the bottom of the message.

  • Font Size

    To ensure readability, the minimum font size should be 12pt. (Exceptions include footer or header notes in text-heavy documents, for example.) Ensure noticeable difference between title and body copy size to create visual hierarchy.

  • Colour Usage

    When it comes to colour usage, the goal is to ensure enough contrast between element (font, icon, etc.) and background for optimal readability. For elements that don't initially have enough contrast (e.g., yellow on white), we use other find ways to ensure readability, such as applying shadows, increasing element size, or using bold fonts.

  • Plain Language

    All marketing and communications materials should meet Pride Winnipeg’s plain language standards. These materials cannot have a higher reading level than Grade 8.
