Help with meeting your legal obligations
Organizations are subject to accessibility legislation across the world, depending on their location and sector.
The EU Web Accessibility Directive, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act are just three such legislations.
The consequences for non-compliance can be severe, but from a moral standpoint, making your website accessible is the right thing to do.
Silktide monitors our website against the latest standards, WCAG 2.2, so we are confident of becoming more compliant against the legal requirements.
