If your website doesn’t meet accessibility standards, then you could be sued for discrimination. Scary thought, right? We don’t want you to end up with a criminal record – after all, it wouldn’t be great for your personal reputation, or that of your company.

It’s not just disabled people you need to think about, it’s also those using web-enabled televisions and mobile phones. It’s about giving access to users who have different screen sizes, browser types and settings.
