Improving web accessibility is essential for businesses and presents significant opportunities for enhancing user experience, according to Jasmine de Guzman in a blog post by Acquia. Addressing the needs of the estimated 16% of the global population with permanent disabilities, along with those with temporary or age-related impairments, can drive engagement and customer loyalty. The post outlines 15 practical steps, including using proper color contrast ratios, adding image alt text, and making sites keyboard-friendly. Legal compliance is also emphasized, as recent rulings have held businesses accountable for accessibility issues. Tools like Monsido and modern CMS platforms such as Drupal can aid in achieving and maintaining web accessibility.
