How Does HTML Microdata Help With Accessibility?

Post by Accrete »

Who knew adding structured data not only helps your SEO but it also adds accessibility...
...Microdata helps to locate and arrange content for browser Reader Mode...

...Reader Mode is a browser feature that makes it easier for someone to focus on content by:
•hiding non-essential page elements like navigation, sidebars, footers, and ads
•changing the page’s text size, contrast and layout for better readability
•removing distracting animations

This helps with creating a more accessible experience for people with cognitive impairments or learning disabilities, such as Dyslexia, as it strips away everything that’s unnecessary on the page...

Microdata is an aria i need to learn more about. I really haven't had the chance to look in to it to deep these days.

I like the idea that it is not only helping SEO but also helps accessibility, but it does make sense that it would.

If i had to develop a website these days, i would most likely add microdata to it.
