Create Accessible Emails

As you create emails, use the following common practices to help ensure accessibility and usability for everyone.

Clear and Concise Content

  • Write in plain language, avoiding jargon.
  • Use a descriptive subject line.

Headings and Structure

Headings help users quickly understand the information hierarchy to identify main points and topics. Heading styles also allow screen reader users to navigate content more efficiently by jumping to different sections and accessing desired information quickly. Clear and descriptive headings also help with comprehension and reduce cognitive load by breaking the text into manageable sections, making scanning and locating specific information more accessible.
