Accessibility is the Answer

Accessibility is an important aspect of a website that can easily be overlooked when designing a web page. A good web page will cater to all needs that their consumers may have. These needs include disabilities such as, hearing impermeant, sight issues, cognitive problems, neurological disabilities, etc. According to the Web Accessibility Initiative, web accessibility also benefits people without disabilities. This is done through ease of use, smart devices, and catering to temporary disabilities.
I plan to incorporate web accessibility into my website in order to include all types of customers. This will start with the set up of the website. Easy to navigate links, pages, and tabs will help all users move through the web page. One thing I will also address that was not mentioned in the model, is color scheme. A clashing color scheme or faint, hard to read fonts would hurt web accessibility. Making sure pictures and text are high quality will help with the zoom in feature for those with vision problems. Also, any video shared or posted should have subtitles to meet the needs of those with hearing disabilities.
Web accessibility is a vital part of a webpage that can be the key factor between a great website and a terrible website. A good web page should not exclude any individual because of disabilities they can not control. Instead websites should find ways to make sure that all users can have access to the same information and services, no matter their disability.
