Web Accessibility for Content Authors

Web Accessibility for Content Authors

Accessibility means that people can do what they need to do in a similar amount of time and effort as someone that does not have a disability. It means that people are empowered, can be independent, and will not be frustrated by something that is poorly designed or implemented. Thereby, practicing accessibility allows a greater variety of consumers to obtain information regardless of their individual needs. Visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, and neurological disabilities should be taken into account when implementing accessibility measures.
