Video: Essential Accessibility and Pivotree
Digital accessibility is essential in today’s business environment. But most organizations fail to achieve compliance across the enterprise. Why?
Common approaches are fragmented or ineffective. Automated testing tools are a valuable resource, but even when utilized by experienced testers, they can only detect about 30% of accessibility issues, making them a partial solution at best.
Overlays and plug-ins promise instant results, but they only make superficial improvements at best, and compromised the user experience.
A consultant may seem like the answer, but it is a legacy approach that has proven to fail.
Building an internal team is costly and time consuming, and sourcing accessibility to design agencies is extremely risky. Unless a team or agency is comprised of experts, you’re likely being misled if told you’re compliant.
All these approaches fail to achieve compliance, compromise customer experience, and maintain your exposure to legal risk. So how should you proceed?
