Social media Accessibility check list


I've added clear and meaningful alternative text and image descriptions for all images, using the inbuilt alt text function where possible. 


Language is simple, concise and inclusive, avoiding jargon and acronyms.

​☐ Colour 

There is good colour contrast between text and background colours.

​​☐ Motion 

There is no flashing content. 


Links are short and go to an accessible online destination.  

​​☐ Hashtags 

Hashtags are written in CamelCase eg #EveryBodyActive.

​☐ Video 

I've added captions or subtitles to my videos.

​​☐ Stories 

I’ve used auto-captions on my stories on Instagram and Facebook where possible.

​☐ Emojis 

I've used emojis to enhance text, not replace it.
