Your Accessibility Action Plan

How Can You Plan For The Future?

Accessibility no longer means compliance. It has become a mainstream requirement that can transform the business. Therefore every part of the organisation should be involved in creating a holistic strategy for embedding accessibility across various aspects of the entire enterprise (from processes to product development to the culture) in order to better manage compliance, improve the user experience on any device, and create an inclusive workplace environment. At the organizational level, this means establishing leadership, developing internal accessibility policies and practices throughout the organization, and equipping your teams for success.

It is important to remember that many people are now accessing the Web primarily from their mobile devices. If a website is inaccessible for people with disabilities and others, the user will either go to a different website for the product or service, or if there is no alternative such as for a government website, they will be unable to complete the task independently. Some devices your users might be employing to access information include:

  • phones and tablets.
  • digital TVs.
  • wearable devices such as smart watches and devices in car dashboards and airplane seat-backs.
  • refrigerators that have built online systems so you can re-order food.
  • security systems.
  • vending machines.
  • home environment controllers that operate windows, lights, curtains and garden irrigation.

Some Access Issues

  • touchscreens.
  • small screen sizes.
  • different input modalities, including speech and 3D touch enabled by pressure sensors.
  • device use in a different setting, such as bright sunlight.
