Building a More Inclusive Web
Accessibility Services at WDG
At WDG, we firmly believe that every person deserves equal access to information and opportunities online. That is why we offer a range of services to help our clients create engaging digital experiences that are inclusive and accessible to everyone.
What Is Website Accessibility?
Website accessibility is making your digital property usable for all different sorts of users. Users with visual impairments, mental disabilities, impaired motor skills, and a variety of other disabilities all are potential users, and thus potential customers, for your site. Making a website accessible means taking all of these different factors into account when designing and developing your site.
Improved User Experience: By making your website accessible, you are creating an inclusive environment welcoming all users, regardless of their abilities. This leads to a better user experience, higher engagement, and greater customer satisfaction.
A Legal Requirement: Accessibility is not only a moral imperative, it is also a legal requirement. Section 508, 1557, and many other laws are being passed that require companies make their digital properties accessible to all users. By complying with accessibility guidelines, you are mitigating the risk of lawsuits, penalties, and negative publicity for your brand.
Expanded Reach and Market: By making your website accessible, you are tapping into a large and growing market of users with disabilities. You are also establishing yourself as a leader in accessibility, which can boost your reputation and attract new customers.
At WDG, we are passionate about creating digital experiences that are accessible, inclusive, and user-centered. Our accessibility services are designed to help you achieve your accessibility goals, whether it is compliance with accessibility guidelines, improved user experience, or expanded reach and market.
