Accessibility, That Means Wheelchairs, Right?
Most of us are aware of accessibility these days, but what do we think of when imagining the topic? Wheelchair accessible bus platforms, elevators, dipped sidewalks? Yes, while all true and legitimate, many tend to forget one of the most prevalent portions of our modern life: The web.
Think of how much more difficult our lives would be today without access to the information on the internet! The thought is actually quite scary. Accustomed to the advanced speed and flow of information, it would be tough to function properly without internet access. However, for many with disabilities, this can be the case if web content is not designed with accessibility in mind. Fortunately, more attention is being given to accessible web design, and the situation is improving, making digital content available for all.
