Support Icons With Labels


Icons can often confuse users or get misinterpreted by different people due to their experience level or even due to their culture.

Fix this accessibility issue is by adding a subtle text label near the icon which will describe its usage.

Keep this information in mind especially for mobile interfaces which don't support hover effects.

Visually Distinguish Elements

Visually distinguish elements by applying unique shapes, colors, copies, and/or icons. In that way, you ensure that visual hierarchy works perfectly and you avoid accessibility issues. To boost the strength of the visual effect use multiple attributes (color + icon) and not a single one (only color). The latter helps you avoid accessibility issues as well. Color blind people won't notice the color changes.
