The following headings reflect a few of the numerous considerations and justifications for making 100% accessibility a worthy design goal of this or any other Web site.
If your company has no governmental-related business activities, you may conclude that compliance to Federal mandates for accessibility removes the need for making accessibility a paramount concern.
Why is this a shortsighted conclusion for any business organization to make? A primary concern of any business is to stay in business. If you recognize this fact, you will have to agree that this requires a commitment to making your company accessible to the widest possible audience -- especially via the Internet if you have any aspirations of significant growth of your business over both near- and long-term timeframes.
Conversely, if your company conducts direct governmental-related business activities through its Web site(s), each such Web site is mandated to be in compliance with whatever Federal law(s) for accessibility are in effect for that governmental body. For example, in the United States of America, Section 508 applies in such cases.
Whether or not there are laws associated with providing accessibility, the business-related motivations for maximizing accessibility as a Web site-based company should be viewed as reflecting a fundamental prerequisite for individuals and corporations wishing to do business via the Internet.
Perhaps unknowingly, however, most business Web sites continue to lock out prospective customers because they made one or more Web design decisions -- either by choice or oversight -- that inherently will limit user accessibility to their Web site's pages. Typical examples of these extremely short-sighted decisions are listed below:
Because learning from the mistakes of others, as well as ourselves, is a natural path to meaningful, directed professional growth, the above-listed decisions are among those addressed and avoided entirely by Scsi's "Perfect 10" Web Site Standard. Consequently, the remainder of this Web page highlights some of the specific accessibility-related benefits that you will come to recognize and appreciate as being direct consequences of the underlying design of the Scsi P&KT Web site.
To illustrate this starting point graphically and emphasize its nature as being the core for all that follows, a Venn diagram provided below reveals how Logic [L] is the very foundation for Scsi's "AWFUL" design approach -- where "A+W+F+U+L" serves as a mnemonic for each of the five letters shown in brackets above:
As confirmation of having successfully overcoming each of the aforementioned Web design restrictions commonly found among other business Web sites, here are the corresponding accessibility-driven features -- comprising only a portion of Scsi's "Perfect 10" Web Site Standard (not surprisingly) -- provided for you to enjoy while browsing this Web site's pages:
Scsi knows from experience that for a Web site to remain useful, it must be continually re-examined and improved upon.
Accomplishing such on-going improvements depends greatly upon receiving user feedback, criticisms, and additional inputs from individual visitors as to what is still needed, what can be re-addressed to make it better, and anything else that might be standing in the way of getting the job done more effectively, efficiently and completely.
