What is Digital Accessibility?

Digital accessibility is the design and development of digital products and services in a way that ensures they are usable and accessible to all individuals regardless of ability. Digital accessibility is based on four principles, perceivable, operability, understandability and robust.

Digital accessibility practices are applied in creating websites, applications, documents, and any other forms of communication.  Digital accessibility finds solutions for all the different communication barriers that people contend with from having vision and hearing issues to not having a technology skill. 

Strategies includes providing alternatives for non-text content, ensuring proper colour contrast, implementing keyboard navigation support, offering closed captioning and transcripts for multimedia content, and adopting other accessibility standards and guidelines.

Digital accessibility emphasizes the importance of equal access to information, services, and opportunities in the digital realm.

It also provides a lot of benefits to the business.  The big one is a higher search engine optimisation ranking.  Google loves digital accessibillty.
