Nowadays, not only the access to digital content has become a part of our daily lives, it has been also stated as a fundamental right. Not being able to access the Internet for disability reasons is simply a factor of discrimination, even a social and professional exclusion!
In that matter, the worldwide-known Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (or WCAG), ensure that all companies follow its strict Standards that meet the needs of individuals, organizations, and governments internationally.
How do these companies manage to comply with the Accessibility regulations?
The Web Accessibility market offers several options for small to big companies that do not have the knowledge, nor the time, to deal with cumbersome, strict, and intricate accessibility laws. Needless to say that Digital Accessibility requires savvy specialized experts or the appropriate tools to deal with the Web Accessibility rules.
To help them, Accessibility provider companies have been offering different levels of Web accessibility through different Plugin IA widgets. But Web accessibility cannot be improvised and leaves no room for the roughly or start-ups surfing on a niche. That’s why lawyers, web-specialized journalists, and sometimes Website’s end-users complain about non-functional accessibility Plugins.
