Accessibility is a bit of a buzzword right now but for once, it’s a worthy one. Recently, a movement has developed to create guidelines to make sure that the way a Website is built doesn’t exclude people with disabilities or indeed people who just have old Web Browsers (which could be because they or their IT Staff won’t or can’t update them).
Whatever the reason, it makes sense to build a website so that as many people as possible can use it. If your website doesn’t work for someone, that’s a potential customer lost and more than that, we’re sure you’ll agree, it’s good to be a thoughtful and considerate person!
Not everyone has good sight. Think about the way you use your Web Browser, then imagine that you had to rely on a Screenreader which reads each and every piece of text on a web page to you. Screenreaders can’t read the text in images, they instead have to rely on an attribute which your web developer adds to the image called an “alt attribute“. This is just one of the challenges which face people whose sight is restricted.
Weblator build each website with the above and a whole lot more in mind. We do as much as we can within the time we have available and within the constraints of the design to make your website as accessible to as many people as possible.
