Digital accessibility has been the talk of the town for quite a while now, but the gravity at which it needs to be looked at, is still a work-in-progress. As it becomes the need of the hour, the industry is also witnessing an array of trends that are underway for furthering digital accessibility and accessibility testing services.
As the era of digital accessibility brings forth some anticipated trends such as the new WCAG guidelines, etc., it also paves the way for the industry to realize the significance of digital accessibility and the need to truly incorporate it within a product from the very early stages to its reception from the users – from accessibility development, testing to remediation. To elaborate upon a few trends –
There are other trends too, which are anticipated to bring in more digital accessibility and inclusion. With new technologies and innovations coming in the market, accessibility will also see a new light.
But in the quest of doing so, accessibility should be looked at comprehensively. This essentially points towards the need to incorporate accessibility at every stage in the SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle). From the very inception and development of a product, accessibility should be considered a core component. During the whole process as well, accessibility testing services need to be availed and it needs to be a regular and coherent effort to ensure that any and all possible accessibility bottlenecks are identified and eliminated immediately. Post release as well, accessibility remediation is a helpful effort to rectify any anomalies that still persist for differently-abled users.
Thus, digital accessibility has surely come a long way, but a longer way is still in the works. With the upcoming trends and changes that are anticipated, digital inclusion can actually become a dream which comes true. From AI and ML to truly accessible applications, digital accessibility presents a promising future and greater inclusion in the coming years.
