why Web Accessibility?
Extended market reach, enhanced usability, cost savings
Whether the Federal Rehabilitation Act requires your website to meet Section 508 standards and/or you are interested in meeting a higher level of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), Collaborint has the web accessibility expertise you need to achieve your goals.
We recommend that a minimum of WCAG 2.0 Level A conformance be implemented for any website. But, aside from meeting mimimum requirements for people with disabilities why consider web accessibility? Put simply, ROI.
Extended market reach
By design, an accessible website will make it easier for search engines to crawl and index website content, potentially enhancing Search Engine Optimization (SEO) efforts.
Better experience for all users
Accessible websites are not just for people with disabilities — the aging with poor eyesight, mobile users, users with low bandwidth connections, and more will have a better experience.
Standards-based HTML, generally the choice for developing accessible websites, improves cross browser and forward compatibility with emerging technology.
