Web Accessibility Assurance and Ongoing Technical Consulting Services
Web Accessibility is essential for organizations and developers who want to provide quality websites and tools in a way that allows all people to access their services and products, including individuals with disabilities.
Not only is website accessibility essential, it is a requirement for colleges, universities and public schools, as well as government institutions. Many other industry verticals are making this a priority as well.
When organizations have barriers preventing individuals with disabilities from accessing their online content, they are in violation of Federal Law. Ongoing web accessibility services provided by qualified professionals can help prevent organizations from running into legal issues.
Web Accessibility Compliance is a Long-Term Commitment
Achieving compliance with internationally recognized web accessibility standards, otherwise known as Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1), is a rigorous and multi-dimensional process. WCAG 2.1 provides a standard for web content accessibility for individuals, governments and organizations, on an international basis. Reaching these guidelines generally includes phases of work performed by trained professionals, who put endless hours and energy into transforming a website to function at its highest ability, thus allowing individuals with disabilities equal access to the content it provides.
Individuals with disabilities are some of the people that benefit the most from Internet access. Using the Internet is a necessary function of life in many ways, in large part as a result of its ability to provide services and flexibility to its users. Some disabled individuals use the Internet to complete their education and meet friends, while others use it to purchase goods and maintain independence.
Imagine if you were unable to leave your home and the only way to have access to the world was the Internet. Wouldn’t you want to have full access to all that it provides? Not only is achieving web accessibility important in order to provide equal access to individuals with disabilities, ensuring ongoing compliance is equally crucial.
