What is Web Accessibility?
The Internet is made up of users with different abilities, impairments, and contexts. Web accessibility refers to ensuring websites, technology and content are created so that everyone can comprehend, operate, understand and use information and services online. Some examples include websites that can be navigated by keyboards or assistive devices, ensuring images have alternative text where necessary, and content is clearly organized with logical headings. Governments are increasingly implementing laws to encourage organizations to provide websites and content that are accessible to everyone (e.g. AODA, B.C. Accessibility Act, Manitoba Accessibility Legislation, and Americans with Disabilities Act).
Upanup is committed to creating web solutions that are accessible for people with disabilities, and meet the WCAG 2.1 Level AA standards. Our internal teams strive to achieve AAA standards and do so wherever they can.
