The W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative defines three major purposes for a web accessibility statement:

  • Let your users know that you care about them and about making your site accessible
  • Give them information about your site's compliance to accessibility standards
  • Demonstrate commitment to social responsibility and to making your site accessible to all

Publishing an accessibility statement is also an important part of complying with a variety of accessibility laws and policies.

An accessibility statement should be available on every digital platform or website regardless of compliance status.

The accessibility statement clarifies the site's current and foreseen accessibility status by defining which specific guidelines and standards have been applied, whether there are known shortcomings, what the current plan is to address those shortcomings, and contact information for the person in charge of accessibility.

Accessibility statements should always reflect the current status of a website, and should be updated as accessibility issues are addressed.

Fill in the below information about your site and Aten’s accessibility expert, Michaela Blackham, will email you with your custom statement.
