A Guide to Understanding Digital Accessibility
In addition to making sure print materials are made accessible to all, it is also extremely important that digital documents are accessible to all. Some people may assume simply putting materials online make them accessible, but it’s not that easy. Check out the video, produced by PACER’s Simon Technology Center in collaboration with the National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials, at the end of this blog post for an explanation of digital accessibility.
One of the things the video addresses is WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines). Accessible360 works with clients on having their websites/mobile apps meet WCAG standards, so their websites/mobile apps are as accessible as possible. Particularly in this increasingly digitized age we live in, digital accessibility is a must!
