Why Website Accessibility Matters

If your team hasn’t been thinking about web accessibility, now is the time. Sites built with accessibility in mind can improve usability for everyone and enhance user experience, thereby building brand loyalty and encouraging conversions. Plus, it’s far cheaper and easier to remediate an inaccessible website on your timeline, then that brought on by a complaint.

For the last year, websites have been required to meet new ADA compliance guidelines under the Revised Section 508 standards. In this webinar, we'll walk you through these standards and the steps you can take to make your website accessible.

  • Why web accessibility matters
