Day 32: Benefits of Designing for A11y

Things I accomplished

What I learned today

There are several benefits to starting out a design process with accessibility in mind, rather than catching it after production and resorting to remediation. Some of these benefits include:

  • a solid customer base due to an off-the-shelf accessible product,
  • saved money by building it right rather than redesigning over and over again,
  • minimized legal risk,
  • innovation and the challenge to solve real-world problems,
  • improved productivity,
  • improved diversity, and
  • improved corporate image and brand when accessible technologies and strategies are incorporated within their organization.
