Complying with legal accessibility requirements is not the only reason your college or university should pay attention to accessibility on your .edu. An accessible site is a highly usable site for everyone.
Creating an accessible website helps you to better understand the diversity of your site visitor. Many have different kinds of disabilities, such as visual, motor, auditory, speech, or cognitive impairments. In our lifetime, we all experience these situations in one way or another — we break an arm, or we experience blurry vision or color blindness, etc. These impairments could be temporary or permanent.
Build your college or university website to follow proper standards and it’ll become easier for all of your site visitors to perceive your web content.
