What is Web Accessibility?
Web accessibility addresses the issues that face people with any form of disability who wish to use the Web. Specifically, Web accessibility means that people with a disability can use, understand, navigate, communicate with, interact with and contribute to the Web.
Web accessibility is not only a corporate and social responsibility but it is now also a legal requirement in many countries such as the USA with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 508 and the UK, under the 1995 Disabilities Discrimination Act (DDA) Part 3.
How is Web Accessibility Measured?
The W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), are used by government authorities, industry bodies, and organisations around the world as a means of measuring accessibility conformance.
Some disability agencies and government departments have developed their own guidelines but these too are based on the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Guidelines. Segala was involved in helping to create the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and is therefore in a better position than most, to help you understand the technical and commercial benefits to your organisation.
