Following “design for inclusion” best practices is the right thing to do. Ensure your website content is readily accessible to everyone.
Section 508 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) provide frameworks for making website content more accessible to people with disabilities. Businesses with brick-and-mortar locations have prioritized physical accessibility within their locations for decades. More recently, websites have begun to be viewed legally as “places of public accommodation”. This is why it is important to ensure that your website and mobile app are accessible to all users, including those who may be using a screen reader.
