Website Accessibility

A-2-Z Internet Accessibility and Marketing


    The Internet has transformed the 21st century for many millions of people all over the world, opening up educational, commercial, and social opportunities that could not have been imagined just a generation ago. But how many more millions are denied full access to the internet and its potential because of barriers to people with disabilities? A-2-Z Internet Accessibility and Marketing recognizes the importance of accessibility for websites, and that websites and web tools need to be designed and coded properly so that people with disabilities are able to use them too.

    Web Accessibility Guidelines and Legislation

    Accessibility for people with disabilities has become a prominent issue as societies all across the globe recognize that the rights of those people must be protected by law. For example, when the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 was passed in the United Kingdom, it was a starting point in recognizing the obstacles faced by people with disabilities. Only once the Equality Act of 2010 passed into law did it translate to legal protection for people with disabilities. The terms of this legislation don’t just offer protection to those affected by discrimination: the Equality Act of 2010 officially prohibits businesses from excluding anyone with a disability from using their services. Digital accessibility for websites means full compliance with all guidelines and standards, and provide equal access for all. A-2-Z Internet Accessibility and Marketing has the experience and proficiency to produce results that all international businesses are seeking in order to comply with similar legislation.

    Removing Barriers to Accessibility

    Website Accessibility Checker - A Work For Experts

    With an estimated 15% of the world’s population having some form of disability—cognitive, visual, hearing, mobility— you can understand the important role of the web accessibility checker. Countries all over the world are establishing standards for digital accessibility. For instance, a website accessibility checker in the UK understands that the task is to determine whether the website meets the international WCAG 2.1 AA standards. The role of the website accessibility checker is to verify that each subpage of your website allows a person with a disability to make full use of the site. Those billion people with disabilities need and deserve a website that facilitates their ability to navigate a website.

    Businesses are advised to call upon a website accessibility checker who is an expert; this is not a DIY project. It’s too important to be left in the hands of amateurs. The professional who has undertaken the job of accessibility checker for a website knows that there are legal ramifications if the website fails to meet requirements.   Are your devices, browsers, and assistive technologies performing as intended?
