Digital Accessibility

What is Digital Accessibility?

When people think of accessibility, they often have in mind ramps instead of stairs, wide doors and lowerable buses, but the term is much broader. Also, information and services in general must be designed in such a way that they are accessible to everyone without outside help.

The main objective of digital accessibility is to make information and interactions accessible to all user groups and end devices. Therefore, online products and services should be perceptible and operable for everyone, regardless of the user’s comprehension or method used, and regardless of end devices, operating systems or the software.

Accessibility + Usability = Quality for everyone
