What the heck is website accessibility?
Website accessibility involves creating websites so that people with disabilities can use them. It’s about removing barriers and allowing all users to have the ability to find and get the information they need when they visit your website.
When a website is accessible it’s easier for people with disabilities to navigate, understand, and interact with the content.
Accessibility is a smart business move. And for some businesses it’s actually required (learn about the AODA website accessibility rules for Ontario businesses).
The Accessible Canada Act (ACA), Accessibility for Ontarions with Disabilities Act (AODA) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) rules are more than just a list of things that you need to check off for your website to be considered compliant. It requires a good grasp of the requirements, the expertise and often deep, meticulous and thorough work and testing to do it right.
It’s one of the best insurance policies for your business!
Does my website have to be accessible?
