Reasons for accessibilityby Flash Bristow, Website Accessibility Consultant
Five reasons why YOUR website should be accessible
So what's stopping you!Worried about the cost?
All my website designs automatically incorporate a high level of accessibility. This is what any web designer should be doing! So if you've bought an inaccessible site from someone in the last year or so, ask for your money back!
In fact, with an accessibility specialist, you are more likely to be charged a fair rate - knowing you have gone to an expert rather than one of the many cowboy designers who have merely done one software course before setting up in business. Accessibility experts such as myself tend to come from a more technical background, really understand what they are doing and the options available to you - and best of all, charge a fair price!
If you already have a website, the cost of remedial work can vary but is likely to be less than you think. I offer a website accessibility audit for £105 - this is refundable against the cost of any remedial work needed. And if your website turns out to be accessible to WAI-AAA standard, I won't charge for the audit.
Worried how an accessible site will look?
The point of accessibility is that it should be transparent. There is no reason for your site's look and feel to change - simply that accessibility functions are added in. Mostly this occurs "behind the scenes" - for example, to ensure that images have text-only alternatives, or to provide an easy method of navigation to users who do not have a mouse.
Your brand image and style will be untouched, while your site quietly benefits from the accessibility benefits detailed above.

"Thank you so much for all your hard work on my behalf; you very quickly grasped the image I wanted to portray. I am really pleased with the website that was delivered earlier than I expected and on budget. Your extensive knowledge of websites and the legislation that affects them is impressive and led to a level of detail that I was not expecting. I literally could not have done it without you. It has been a real pleasure working with Web Design & Mastery."
