What is Digital Accessibility?
Digital accessibility is the concept of designing digital content to ensure equal accessibility for everyone – regardless of ability. Organizations should account for digital accessibility in both the design and the digital experience provided by their websites and other digital documents.
To give you the tools and training needed to increase the accessibility of the State's digital assets.
Why Are We Doing This?
State of Delaware websites play a crucial role in providing information and services to the citizens and businesses in Delaware. It is essential that our websites are digitally accessible so that everyone has equal access to the resources and information they need.
When State government websites are accessible, individuals with disabilities can easily explore information about State programs, services, and policies, participate in online services such as paying taxes or renewing licenses, and stay informed on important issues that impact their communities.
Delaware aims to create an inclusive digital world where people of all abilities can have equal access to the information, resources, and opportunities that the internet provides. Whether you are a person with a disability, a designer, a developer, or just someone interested in promoting digital accessibility, you will find valuable information. The resources on our site can help you understand the importance of technology and how to create an understandable online experience for everyone.
Accessible websites are more user-friendly and cost-effective, as a broader range of people can use them without needing additional accommodations. Ensuring digital accessibility on state government websites is not only a legal requirement under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), but it also reflects Delaware's commitment to creating a more inclusive and equitable society for all.
