Accessibility policy

details

Why it's needed:

An accessibility policy is needed to ensure compliance with laws that dictate that digital channels such as websites or mobile applications are accessible to a broad audience—including those who are disabled. Some organizations that operate in countries where accessibility is not legally mandated might consider doing so anyway as a competitive advantage or to support their guiding principles (e.g., to better the lives of people).

Key points:

  • Accessibility statement posted to digital channels
  • Accessibility tags added to content in digital channel(s)
