Accessibility on the web isn't optional, it's required! Web accessibility is both a requirement and simply the right thing to do.
If the Internet is a global village, then it is needless to say that web accessibility are the electronic curb cuts that enable all of us to have equal access to it's information. And just like curb cuts, web accessibility isn't some random feature that can be tacked on later. No, web accessibility is both a requirement and simply the right thing to do. We as graphic designers are in a unique position where we have control over how content is presented, and we owe it to our users to identify, remove, and prevent any barriers to access.
