Making websites accessible to and usable by visitors with disabilities.
Accessible Web Design
As the internet grows, so does the population of people using it. Many times, that includes people with disabilities, ranging from visual and auditory to speech or cognitive. We feel that, if possible, it is important to make websites available to as much of the population that uses the internet as possible. There are many reasons to carry out accessible website design, but when it comes down to it, it is a good business practice and will make your site and services available to a larger proportion of the population.
Additionally, government and higher education sites are required to create and maintain accessible websites. If you want your content to match those standards, you should commit to making your website accessible.
Boston Web Designers has the resources to help you understand the benefits of making your website accessible, as well as the resources to make sure the process is done right.
Industry Standards and Accessibility
Our website designs use Cascading Style Sheets and design standards based on W3C standards.
