When given the option, I’m sure everyone would choose to make their website as accessible as humanly possible; however, at a certain point you may need to balance that with timelines or other functionality/features depending on what your(or your client’s) websites purpose and target market is. That brings us to this weeks DOTW topic!
For those who haven’t looked into Accessibility much, or at all, here’s some links to get you introduced to the topic:
Definition from WordPress.org:
Accessibility in web design means creating web pages that everyone can use, regardless of hardware, software, or any sensory or physical impairment.
1. Have you ever had a client ask about accessibility or require a certain level of it? If so, how did that go?
2. Have you ever had accessibility related complaints sent to you about your website or a clients website?
3. Does developing/designing for inclusion and accessibility slow innovation and progress?
Also, don’t forget just last year a gentleman took a grocery store to court over the inaccessibility of their site, and won! We covered that story on our blog: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/website-accessibility-ada/
