Equal access for all
Digital accessibility ensures equal access to online content for a significant percentage of the population - 26% of American adults with a disability. Further, Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act guarantees equal access in “places of public accommodation,” and today, US courts are interpreting this access to include the internet.
So, is your online content accessible and accommodating one quarter of the US population?
When it comes to an accessible digital experience, difficulty interacting with your content can come in many forms. For example, someone color blind needs to adjust the color contrast in order to see everything. Someone with limited motor skills may not be able to use a mouse.
Proper keyboard functionality is critical. An individual who has dyslexia may need a different font in order to more easily read your information. There are various visual, auditory, motor and cognitive impairments that must be considered when designing an accessible online experience.

Limited fine motor control
Tremor and spasms
