Legal compliance from day one
Provide equal access
for all users of your site
It is estimated that 15% of the world population (~1 billion people) and 26% of U.S. adults have some form of disability. Disabilities can be visual, auditory, cognitive, or physical. They can also be permanent, temporary, or situational. Digital accessibility means creating and maintaining a barrier-free digital experience so that individuals of all abilities can access—and interact with—online information.
Think about digital accessibility the same way you think of accessibility in the physical world. If a building isn’t designed for someone using an assistive device, like a wheelchair, that person is blocked from moving around that building. Similarly, if a website is not designed to work with assistive technology, like a screen reader, that individual is blocked from moving around that website.
Digital accessibility are features that enable users with disabilities to navigate, understand, and interact with digital content. An example would be support for assistive technologies (AT) like screen readers. Think of it as the “ramps and rails” of the digital world.
Why does it matter?
The inability to navigate the internet is debilitating. Web and mobile channels are fast becoming the primary route to a wide range of important services, such as buying groceries, consuming entertainment, paying bills, and even socializing. Especially given recent global events, students are now often dependent on online access to attend classes. If your digital services aren’t accessible to everyone, you are effectively shutting out up to 61 million people living with a disability. Positive Medium makes it fast, easy, and affordable to begin the journey to providing equal access for all.
