Why web accessibility is important?

The Web is an increasingly important resource in many aspects of life: education, employment, government, commerce, health care, recreation, and many more. It is essential that the Web is accessible in order to provide equal access and opportunity to people with disabilities. An accessible Web can help people with disabilities to participate more actively in society.

How to implement accessibility

There are few things we have to take care when developing websites:

  • Marking up forms semantically
  • Adequate colour contrast
  • Use of ‘alt’, ‘title’, ‘em’,  and use ‘aria’ attributes
