All too often I am asked to work on DIY websites where I'm able to see the optimisation efforts that DIY site owners have put into them. Accessibility is one aspect often overlooked.
Making a website accessible means ensuring that it can be used by as many people as possible, including those with disabilities. This can include people with visual impairments who use screen readers, people with mobility impairments who use keyboards or assistive technology, and people with cognitive or learning disabilities.
There are several reasons why making a website accessible is important:
Inclusivity: By making a website accessible, you can ensure that all users, regardless of their abilities, can access and use your website. This is especially important for people with disabilities, who may otherwise be excluded from using your website.
Legal compliance: In many countries, there are laws and regulations that require websites to be accessible to people with disabilities.
SEO: Making a website accessible can also improve your search engine optimization (SEO). This is because search engines like Google prioritize websites that are accessible to users, as they are more likely to provide a good user experience.
User experience: Finally, making a website accessible can improve the user experience for all users. This is because accessible websites are often easier to navigate, have clearer content, and are more intuitive to use.
Wix has a great many features to make it accessible.
