About Rosemary’s presentation:

Future-proof your web presence: Why creating an accessible and standards-compliant website is good for business

  • Web accessibility allows all your content to be available anytime, anywhere by all your visitors on any device. Itis the inclusive practice of making websites usable by people of all abilities and disabilities.
  • Studies show that accessible websites have lower maintenance costs, better search results, and increased audience reach, among other benefits. Creating an accessible website also demonstrates corporate responsibility.
  • In the United States, Australia and other countries there are laws which require websites to meet certain accessibility standards.  These laws are gradually being introduced in Canada.  Let’s make sure we are ready!
