Producing mobile websites and apps that are accessible can be challenging, as the small screen size and touch based interactions can make it difficult for users with disabilities to access content. Best practices for mobile accessibility include ensuring that text is large and easy to read, providing high contrast colours, and ensuring that all functionality is operable through a touch interface. It’s also important to ensure that a website is usable with assistive technologies such as screen readers and keyboard navigation.
Following WCAG guidelines can help improve a websites search engine rankings and increase its visibility to users. The Google search algorithm gives some priority to websites that are accessible.
WCAG guidelines apply to eCommerce websites just like any other website. This includes making online forms, checkout processes, and other interactive elements accessible. Additionally, it’s important to ensure that the website is usable with assistive technologies such as screen readers and keyboard navigation. By following these guidelines, eCommerce websites can ensure that all users have equal access to their products and services.
With the ongoing advancements in web technologies such as virtual and augmented reality, WCAG guidelines will need to adapt to be more inclusive and accessible. This means that new guidelines will be developed to ensure that these new technologies are accessible to users with disabilities. Additionally, existing guidelines will be reviewed and updated to ensure that they are still relevant and effective.
