Deaf/Hard of Hearing

For those who are deaf, English may not be the primary language; it may be British Sign Language. Readability and text layout are important accessibility factors, as are the provision of alternatives for multimedia content with captioning, subtitles and text transcriptions. The use of meaningful graphics and clear headings can also be helpful. Further advice from the Paciello Group on Sounding out the web: accessibility for deaf and hard of hearing people.
