On Demand: Building and Remediating Accessible Websites

Building and remediating accessible websites is a crucial process that ensures digital content is usable by people with various disabilities. This involves implementing key features such as keyboard navigation, high-contrast color schemes, clear and simple content, and proper HTML structure for screen readers. Designers and developers should prioritize addressing Level A and AA issues according to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), focusing on high-impact problems and frequently visited pages. The process goes beyond simply checking off items on a list; it requires understanding the real-world impact on users with disabilities and fostering an accessibility-minded approach throughout the development team. While remediation can be achieved relatively quickly and cost-effectively for small businesses and bloggers, larger organizations may need a more comprehensive strategy. Ultimately, creating accessible websites ensures compliance with legal requirements and expands the reach and usability of digital content for a significant portion of the global population.

This event features a discussion on the importance of digital accessibility for legal compliance, as well as how it positively affects your SEO. We take a deep dive into iMedia, WebArc Technologies, Monsido-Acquia, and Unity Web Agency to discuss the services they offer, what to budget, and what to expect. Then we answer audience questions.
