The importance of an organisation’s online presence being accessible is nothing new, but it is certainly more important now than it has ever been. 2020 has shown us many things, but this has to be a priority. More and more people are needing to access information and services online as organisations have adapted to a more flexible working environment and offices close or work on limited capacity.
So what does digital ‘accessibility’ actually mean? Fundamentally it’s the requirement that anyone, no matter their physical circumstances, device or connectivity, can access the information they need online.
Ensuring your website runs in an optimal way, is mobile friendly and easily searched requires constant consideration and expertise and many organisations ensure that those boxes are ticked. Businesses are lucky today to also have a range of solutions available to them that can turn a once unfriendly website to those with a range of disabilities into something accessible at the click of a button. Prices are no longer prohibitive and great functionality can be gained at little cost.
Clifton Ingram LLP has recently added an Accessibility button to the website which ensures we are as user-friendly as possible and available to help no matter your circumstances. To us this is not a tick box exercise, it’s simply the right thing to do. We’re here to help all.
