What Does Web Accessibility Really Mean?

According to Census data, 27% of people in the U.S. have a disability that can make accessing online information difficult. For most organizations, that number alone makes improving web accessibility an imperative. A truly inclusive website provides an integrated approach that goes beyond basic and expected adaptations.

Inclusive web development helps overcome barriers to access including:

  • Auditory disabilities, including full or partial hearing loss and difficulty understanding sounds when there is background noise

  • Visual disabilities, including low vision, blindness, color blindness, or light sensitivity

  • Cognitive disabilities, which include a range of challenges including learning disabilities, neurodiversity, and behavioral and mental health disorders

  • Physical disabilities, such as muscular, sensory, joint, and pain disorders that limit movement and the ability to use devices

  • Speech disabilities, which make it difficult to use video chat, teleconferencing, or voice recognition technologies

  • Communication barriers, including language and cultural differences

Accessibility Isn't a Checkbox

“For us, compliance standards are a baseline. But being inclusive means being in true partnership with your customers. It comes from a place of combined empathy and pragmatism. It’s being always open to the needs of others so you can deliver your solutions to everyone who wants them.”

Craft Your Accessibility Statement

Demonstrate Commitment to Inclusivity

Just as you include a Privacy Policy on your site, you should also include an Accessibility Statement. This simple document explains in plain language:

  • How you aim to ensure equal access for all your website users

  • Where you are at in your conformance with WCAG and ADA standards

  • Steps you take to make digital content and services usable for people with various abilities

  • How people can connect with you to report accessibility issues

  • How you respond to those issues and proactively mitigate emerging issues that you identify

Add An Accessibility Toolbar

Enable individuals to adapt your website to their needs.

An accessibility toolbar is an embedded widget that provides an array of controls so that site visitors can customize aspects of your site and launch adaptive tools. Some examples of adaptive controls include:

  • Text readers to convert selected text to audio

  • Translators for real-time text and audio translations

  • Contrast, saturation, and color customization

  • Font sizing and style adaptation

  • Link highlighting

  • Image-hide to reduce distraction

  • Cursor customization

  • Ruler tool to enhance focus

  • Magnifying glass to enlarge screen segments

  • And more

  • Mitigation recommendations and details

  • Performance tracking to show how you are improving

  • Reporting to enable you to share your status and progress with both internal stakeholders and outside parties
