Accessibility

When testing your site, you will have no choice but to test for accessibility. Tell that to the average web developer, and you can expect a response along the following lines: “Dude, it isn't a government project.” Our response is, “Dude, that no longer matters.” Accessibility is now jurisdictional, and you will have to make your work accessible to those with disabilities.

To put the magnitude of the issue into perspective, we would like you to seriously comprehend the scope of the issue by understanding the plight of the blind. Did you know, 70% of the U.S. population who are legally blind are either unemployed or underemployed? Of that group, approximately 1% have access to the data necessary to change their situation. That means you have essentially locked out 99% of the blind population in the U.S. from the web.
