It is critical for all businesses to think about digital accessibility early and often. Why? Because making accessible user experiences for all users, including users with disabilities or people who use assistive technology, improves your product or service for everyone. In fact, companies that don’t invest in accessible experiences can face potentially expensive legal consequences. When you proactively design fully accessible products, services, and experiences that conform with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1 AA), you ensure digitally inclusive experiences that work for all people and can rest easy knowing you’re not at risk for a lawsuit. Join us for chats with experts for hot tips on how small businesses and entrepreneurs can be mindful of accessibility from the start.
