Creating accessible websites and webshops for all – through digital accessibility. Imagine you can see nothing or only a little. Then you want a high-contrast design or even need to have the offers of an online store read aloud. If users can’t hear, videos need subtitles. Large buttons make navigation easier for people with limited mobility. In all these cases, the implementation of digital accessibility plays an important role. We believe that accessibility online is not a trend, but a social responsibility that we at hmmh are happy to take on. That’ s how we try to make the world a little bit better with websites that can be used by all people regardless of their limitations. In this presentation, we will talk about accessibility metrics and what impact non-accessible websites have on users and website owners.
