What is Digital Accessibility?
Digital accessibility is the practice of ensuring that websites, web applications, and digital content can be used by our community who have a diverse range of hearing, movement, sight, or cognitive abilities.
Digital accessibility is essential for people with disabilities and useful for all. When we prioritize accessibility, we build better digital experiences for everyone.
