Anyone can be 'normal' online, but where does that leave our attitudes toward disabled people offline? In an era of digitalization, technology provides a way to innovate. Accessibility to the Web is essential to ensure equal access and equal opportunities for persons with disabilities.
Let us examine what tools they use. How does it look? How does it work? How to define digital web accessibility to understand the experience and use of technology among people with disabilities. An overview of basic concepts around accessibility, such as why digital inclusion is predominant.
For example, a video on a website has to be accessible to people who are blind. The video player should be controllable using a keyboard. Consider commands will be categorized correctly, and all the content in the video will be available as audio. But, if there are no subtitles or text transcription available, then the video will be inaccessible to someone who cannot hear the sound. Innovative products, applications, and websites are not easy to use and accessible to everyone. Several government agencies worldwide have made numerous legal changes to make IT products accessible to people with disabilities. Please join my session to understand the high-level introduction to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG).
