Here's what you can do to ensure your digital content is fully accessible to users of all ability levels.

Web accessibility may not seem like an immediate priority for many CEOs, especially with other urgent matters like cybersecurity to worry about. But in your position of authority, you must take the lead in ensuring that your digital content is fully accessible to users of all ability levels — especially with quarantines causing people to rely more heavily on the internet than ever before.

Web accessibility refers to the idea that online content should be accessible to everyone, regardless of any disabilities that could otherwise limit their experience while navigating the web. For example, this includes accounting for the needs of those who are blind or experience mobility issues.

For CEOs intent on growing their business and garnering positive public relations attention along the way, web accessibility must become a key priority.

Perhaps a consideration - AAAtraq comment

Ongoing accessibility failure is the fault of the executives, including the CEO if they continue to be presented the results they want to see - KPI's / Metrics too often set by the Digital Team....the ones doing the reporting, easy for anyone to look good when deciding what to report!
