I wrote an article in Envato Tuts+ site, it’s called Building an Inclusive Web: Why Accessibility Matters. In that article I share my ideas form empathy to accessibility laws. It all boils down to quote from Andrea Fercia.
Would you build a bridge that only a specific type of car can use?
In the article I challenge you to take action and try to build that bridge for everyone. In my ideal world we wouldn’t even need words inclusive design or accessibility. But life isn’t black and white, there is no such thing as 100% accessible website for everyone.
But that shouldn’t stop us using the best practises of inclusive design and accessibility. At first it’s about mental switch, then practical work flow follows.
I hope you read the original article why accessibility matters to me.
