Benefits of Accessibility
Our reasons for a strong focus on accessibility extend far beyond the mandates of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
Structuring our systems and content for use by assistive technologies has multiple benefits beyond simply meeting mandates:
- We value our constituency and desire to have our work available to all interested citizens.
- We recognize that accessibly designed systems are typically easier for non-experts to use.
- We believe that having our site structured for assistive technologies positions us well for wireless and other specialized access devices.
