Web Accessibility

Web Accessibility

A few weeks ago I had the chance to give a small talk about Web Accessibility in the place where I work.

Some of the key points that I talked about were:

  • Web accessibility benefits not only people with disabilities but also improves the usability of a website.
  • Some of the guidelines given by the WCAG are not that complicated to implement, and you are gaining a great number of potential users.
  • The sooner you start to think about accessibility while developing a web site, the easier will it be to implement it.
  • There’s a great number of countries that introduced regulations that require websites to be accessible, specially the government ones.

You can find the complete presentation here and a short video (in spanish) with an example of how a screen reader works here.
