The World Health Organization estimated that there are more than one billion people living with disabilities, with over 100 million persons having significant difficulties in functioning (for more information, see https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/disability-and-health).
Many of these disabilities can affect access to information technologies. Additionally, the same individuals who run into barriers that impede access to information technologies could benefit most from using them.
Given the importance of the internet, accessibility to the web is of critical importance to people with disabilities around the world, including people with auditory, cognitive, physical, neurological, and visual disabilities. It is likewise important to those with accessibility needs due to aging.
Providing accessible web content can also benefit people who do not have disabilities but who are experiencing situational barriers. For example, when accessing the internet from devices with small screens or in low bandwidth situations, or when experiencing barriers due to language or literacy levels, accessibility solutions can also support improved access.
Overlay Facts is committed to ensuring equal access for people with disabilities. As potential customers and employees of Overlay Facts, they are important contributors to Overlay Facts‘s business success and should not be excluded, but rather welcomed into the Overlay Facts family.
Overlay Facts will endeavor to maximize the access of people with disabilities to this website.
Web content produced by Overlay Facts is intended to meet WCAG 2.1 AA by December 2022.
