You're probably familiar with disabled access in the physical world - for example designing buildings with wheelchair access ramps or, better still, designing for accessibility from the start so that the front door is placed at ground level.
Over 1 billion people in the world have some form of disability and a lot of these people are online. The digital world has however largely ignored them.
We've Also Been Guilty Of This
At ConfidenceClub we too have been guilty in the past of designing our website so that it is "easy to use and looks good", but for who really?
Building "The Ramp"
Thanks to the Web Accessibility Initiative there is now a single shared global standard for web content accessibility called the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). This provides a set of recommendations to make it easier for people to see and hear content, and to engage with functionality and navigate web pages.
Ready For Access
We've now addressed our access limitations that made us non-compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, and we can now support a larger audience of people who wish to access our website.
