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.”

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
Image-hide to reduce distraction
Ruler tool to enhance focus
Magnifying glass to enlarge screen segments
