Why we care

Architects have to consider how to accommodate people with disabilities on a regular basis. For example, how do you build a staircase that can also accommodate someone using a wheelchair, or other forms of mobility issues?

By the same token, there are lots of ways to think about building a website or web application with accessibility in mind. One way is to think about it from the perspective of passing a compliance checklist for a desired level of Section 508 or WCAG 2 compliance. Another, more holistic way to think about accessibility is as a constraint that should be embraced, in much the same way designing for touch screens or building for mobile devices is part of our approach to designing digital products.
