Website Accessibility for Wineries

Website Accessibility for Wineries

Website accessibility ensures that a website has been properly designed and coded so that people with disabilities can more easily navigate and use it.

Desiging a website to be a simple, enjoyable user experience on any device is critical for every business. Not only will an accessible website result in more online sales thanks to better user experience, it actually has become a legal requirement in recent years. The Americans with Disabilities Act, meant to keep those with disabilities from being discriminated against or kept from engaging in commerce, now applies to the digital realm. Thus, wineries can face a lawsuit if their website is deemed to violate the ADA, with parameters set by the WCAG 2.1 guidelines.
