The controls you need to build accessible websites

We’re continually updating our elements to include built-in baseline accessibility, while providing features and auditing tools to help you create a more accessible website.

Accessibility controls

Generate clean, semantic code

Webflow contains the power of HTML and CSS in a visual canvas, giving you the ability to make accessible choices that generate semantic code.

Alt text attributes

Ensure your images have alternative (alt) text attributes, or set them as decorative images.

Setting alt attributes

Set HTML5 tags

Set your elements to the proper HTML5 tag to make sure assistive technology can accurately communicate your page structure to visitors.

Setting element tags

Relative units

Use relative units like rems, percentages, viewport height, and character count to create legible and responsive typography.

Flexible custom code options

Add code as needed to set custom attributes, control markup, set custom focus states, and more.

How 8020 helped Brink build a Level AA accessible site in Webflow

“A lot of people add a plugin to a non-accessible website to ‘technically’ meet accessibility standards. But that is such bullshit for anyone that actually uses the accessibility features — they simply don’t work. Our goal was to find a partner who could go much deeper and build a site that was accessible by design.”
