Website accessibility means that everyone, including those with disabilities, can successfully access your website and get all the necessary information from your website. Since the internet is public, it is considered a legal requirement that your website be accessible to disabled people (as part of Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act). Website accessibility lawsuits are on the rise, so it’s very important to make sure that your website meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
Before a website launch, I run accessibility tests to ensure that the website is setup properly to meet the guidelines. As part of my retainer services I also do ongoing accessibility audits to make sure that the website remains accessible. I can also provide accessibility training for those that will be managing your website. The accessibility training will provide guidelines on how to add descriptions to images, structuring web copy and more.
