Learning about accessibility will make you a better content creator. You will make digital spaces better for users.
Non-user-friendly websites are already less likely to rank in search engines. Businesses which do not shift to inclusive or accessible digital design will lose out. But most importantly, including everyone’s needs when we design digital spaces is the right thing to do too!
