The internet is now the primary medium of interaction between businesses and customers. However, many businesses have discovered that they have ignored one critical demographic for far too long — people with disabilities (PWDs). A steady rise in lawsuits under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the associated risks of not complying with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), has made accessibility business-critical.

Four must-haves for website accessibility remediation:

  • Understand the extent of remediation to be undertaken and identify risks of inaction
  • Bring all stakeholders on-board before beginning remediation
  • Test new framework for perceivability, operability, understandability and robustness before going live
  • Ensure continuous accessibility by documenting best practices, performing regular audits and creating awareness
