Are people with visual impairment able to use your website? What about people with hearing impairment, mobility issues, or cognitive disabilities? 1 in 5 Americans has a disability of some kind, so it’s important to make sure that your website is usable for everyone. An accessible and inclusively designed website respects the civil rights of everyone, expands your reach, downloads faster, is more usable, works better in different browsers and on different devices, has better SEO, is easier to manage, and demonstrates your commitment to social responsibility.
But how can you be sure your website works for everyone? In this workshop, we’ll walk you through testing your website, identifying potential issues, and fixing the most common accessibility problems. We’ll cover the basic principles of accessibility and inclusive design and share tips and tools for making and keeping your website accessible.
