making the internet available to everyone now

By: Actonbv  05/12/2011

Accessibility is about making your website available to as many people as possible, regardless of ability or technology. It is often addressed as part of the disability agenda but is better considered in the context of universal design.

Here at Acton BV, we can ensure that your website is fully compliant with recognised standards. These include the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) Guidelines as set down by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). Considered the global benchmark for web accessibility, there is no better yardstick for measuring and improving your website's performance.

Making your website accessible doesn't require a lot of time or effort and the benefits far outweigh the costs. You broaden your market reach, increase your download speeds, satisfy your legal obligations and achieve positive publicity. In short, web accessibility makes so much sense in so many ways.
