    Graphic Designer must choose accessible fonts. Selecting clear and easy to read fonts is essential for individuals with dyslexia, visual impairments, and other reading difficulties. Avoid using complex fonts, and consider increasing the font size to improve readability. Also include alternative text for images.

    For users who are visually impaired or using screen readers, it’s important to provide alternative text for images. This helps them understand the context and content of the image even if they cannot see it.
