Beyond compliance: making the case for accessibility
Accessibility is more than code compliance and avoiding law suits. Many organizations are still struggling with justifying the cost of implementing accessibility. In reality, accessibility offers many advantages and opportunities such as: future proofing code, creating human-centric and empathetic designs, building innovative products. Accessibility should be leveraged as an overall strategy for your organization.
