Understanding Website Accessibility
Website accessibility is a requirement for every website. Regardless of the potential lawsuits, your website should be accessible so that everyone can use it, no matter what technology they use to browse the web. So let’s take a dive into making your website accessible.
Website accessibility is no longer an optional feature. It is a requirement for being on the internet today. You need to be making your website accessible.
But what does being accessible entail? It’s making sure people who use something other than a mouse can use your website the same way mouse users can. It’s making sure people can see the words because you have the right color contrast. And it’s making sure images have descriptive alternative text.
That seems like a lot. And it can feel so overwhelming when you start looking into it. We’ve all been there. But once you sit down and start to learn and start to fix some of the errors, it will all start to make sense.
This journey will give you blog posts, videos, resources that can help you learn web accessibility. And then you can begin to work to make your website accessible.
Because everyone — everyone — should be able to use your website no matter what technology they use to browse the web. Accessibility matters.
