Accessibility Support

Accessible websites help you broaden the target audience by meeting guidelines set by organizations such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

These websites can be easily accessed by users with disabilities (who use assistive technologies, such as screen readers to work with web pages) and by users with text-only browsers or software that interprets web page content (included in mobile devices, for instance). Accessible design also enables automation tools - such as search engines - to find, index and work seamlessly with this information. In addition, accessible web applications benefit all users, not just those with disabilities.

The guidelines for creating accessible applications are published by various organizations that provide recommendations (e.g., W3C's WCAG 2.0 (level AA) and WAI-ARIA) or government standards (e.g., the U.S. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act; see Section 508: Guide to the Standards for more details).
