Web Accessibility Resources
Our mission at User1st is to make the web accessible to everyone, today. Although we are a technology company, a main part of achieving our mission is separate from our innovative software solutions. Providing information, knowledge, and resources on the topic of accessibility will make a far greater and lasting contribution to the topic of disability inclusion than any software. Changing the way people view, approach, and tackle issues relating to disability rights is the best way to make lasting change.
Below is a list of resources on numerous topics related to web accessibility and disability in general. Our goal is to teach, inspire, and spur lasting change.
This list will be updated as we create new content.
