What is Web Accessibility?
Web accessibility is a set of rules, behaviors, code standards, and design guidelines that are used
to enable people with disabilities, which comprise 20% of the world’s population, to use websites
To achieve this, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has created the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1), which explain about and guide developers on how to make websites accessible to people with disabilities. These guidelines have been adopted by governments around the world and are now a part of various legislations, such as Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, the European standard for digital accessibility (EN 301 549), and others.
The WCAG focuses mainly on three areas of accessibility: blind people using screen-readers (JAWS, NVDA), people with motor impairments who use only keyboards, and a variety of other disabilities such as color blindness, epilepsy, and minor visual impairments that are mainly focused on the user interface (UI) and design of the website (color contrasts, animations, fonts, etc.)
In September 2021, Searchen Networks® announced a partnership with accessiBe for Web Development Compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA): https://accessibe.com. The software can be seen in use on this site and is identified by a small handicapped icon on the lower left portion of the screen. All our web designs now have accessiBe as an available add-on during the build process or anytime thereafter for clients interested in compliance.
