With the importance of accessibility being acknowledged worldwide, many countries and states have enacted laws and policies to ensure that everyone can enjoy the same experiences when using the web.
Vengurlekar's blog explores these compliance acts and standards, providing readers with the information they need to ensure their websites are compliant.
The blog post closely observes various compliance acts and standards created to ensure internet features are accessible to all users, such as:
