Why Web Accessibility is Important
It's the right thing to do - An accessible website strives for equal access for everyone to online materials, including web pages, documents, audio and video.
It's the law - Federal and state regulations require public organizations, such as Weber State University, to have accessible websites. Lawsuits and civil rights complaints can be filed against universities for not making sure web content accessible.
