The importance of Accessibility Testing
Having an Accessibility friendly website enables all users to have a positive experience, including those with certain disabilities - visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, language, learning and neurological disabilities.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 15% of the population have a disability, and for this reason Accessibility Testing has become imperative.
However, it's not just your users that you need to cater for, you also need to be legally compliant with the WCAG 2.1 guidelines to avoid a costly and potentially damaging lawsuit. Colour contrast, screen reader capability, keyboard navigation, call-to-action identification and captions are all outlined in the WCAG 2.1 guidelines and your site must meet these baseline requirements for it to be legally accessible.
