Digital Accessibility

Dig­i­tal acces­si­bil­i­ty refers to the prac­tice of enabling all peo­ple to use a web­site or native appli­ca­tion. It involves min­i­miz­ing or remov­ing restric­tions in the use of tech­nol­o­gy due to bar­ri­ers of abil­i­ty: visu­al, audi­to­ry, speech, phys­i­cal, or neu­ro­log­i­cal. Learn how to con­sid­er acces­si­bil­i­ty in the design, plan­ning, and mar­ket­ing of web­sites, appli­ca­tions, and forms. Explore the prin­ci­ples of human-cen­tred design and the uni­ver­sal design process in light of the unique require­ments of rich media to become acces­si­ble for peo­ple with disabilities.
