Accessibility is a good thing and here’s why
Accessibility means making your web site usable by as many people as possible. Accessible solutions comply with equality legislation and create more value because they reach a larger user group.
Almost 20 per cent of the working population have some kind of functional impairment. People might have difficulty seeing well, using the mouse/keyboard, hearing, reading or understanding. An accessible web site doesn’t just help these people. It helps people with a slow connection, a small display or a rare device, people with the sound turned down or using an old browser or operating system. Accessible web sites also work better for older users who may have motor difficulties, struggle to read small text or hear certain sounds.
