Accessibility

The web is intended to be accessible to all, so it's important to consider every potential visitor to your website.

The internet is for everyone. Keep your website accessible.
Everyone should be able to access online resources. That’s why web accessibility is so important.

Let everyone in on your message

The Internet is meant to be available to everyone. It’s one of the best parts about the Internet – everyone has access. Without an accessible Internet, we risk missing out on important conversations and resources. When everyone is invited to participate, there are more opportunities for cooperation and collaboration.

All Users should be considered

Accessibility is important to your business, too. Whether it’s using alternative text for images or allowing for keyboard input, every detail adds to a better user experience. The better your user experience is, the more online traffic you’ll get.

There are government-regulated standards that exist to keep the Internet accessible. In Ontario, accessibility standards are maintained by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, as well as the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation.

These guidelines help web developers create content that is useful to everyone. They’re easy to follow, and they’re important to great design.
