How to create accessible web forms

Forms are an essential component of the web because they connect users to your business and help them accomplish what they came to your site or app for. That being said, you want to make sure that all of your users are able to use your forms without having to suffer a horrible experience. The goal is to make these key user interactions as frictionless as possible.

Although it's true that building forms can be a difficult task at times, making them moderately accessible isn't as complicated as you might think (a good website builder will make it super-simple). There are often excuses thrown around like 'we don't have time to worry about accessibility' or 'we'll make it accessible later'. These excuses are often (if not always) invalid and you can help your team change this mindset.
