Accessible responsive email newsletter

Starting today, October 25th all content that you add to your site and all new websites need to be accessible. We now have one year to make our old websites accessible.

It is also a great time to make your email newsletter accessible. Email newsletters are based on tables. Yes, good old tables that you left behind for divs on your web pages. Divs do not exhibit properly on email clients and that is why e-mail services rely on tables.  Unfortunately, all the table code, including all your trs and tds will be read by the screen reader, rendering your email impossible to read.

We therefore created an accessible and responsive newsletter that does not read the table code. We did this using role=”presentation” attribute.
