In order to have the biggest possible audience visiting your website, it’s not uncommon for organisations to use third parties to generate web content. While there are many benefits to taking this approach, can using third parties impact on the accessibility of your website?
A disturbing trend that is emerging in the market is for developers who build accessible websites also ‘certifying’ that the website they have built is fully compliant.
You may think that an accessibility statement is what you create once you have developed your website, had it audited for compliance, your documents remediated and all your staff trained up in creating accessible content. But if there is organisational commitment to improving digital accessibility, then Media Access Australia’s Deputy CEO Natalie Collins believes the accessibility statement is a great place to start.
