Let’s Talk About:

What to Know About Accessible Web Content

Melissa Foley

By Melissa Foley, Senior User Experience Designer

Website accessibility means more than video captions and alt text for images. It requires entire digital teams to understand the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and how these guidelines impact their jobs. Whether you’re a writer, graphic designer, photographer, or video editor, accessibility impacts your job.

At Viget, we design and build for inclusivity and are committed to helping our clients implement accessibility on all of our projects. Next month, I will share an overview of best practices for making your digital content accessible. To join us, RSVP below!
