College programs need software partners who care for their students like they do. For software providers, this means designing accessible software. Learn more about what digital accessibility means and why it’s important to choose vendors who prioritize it.
When the world went digital, every aspect of life transformed. From communication to entertainment to research, barriers were eliminated and new frontiers opened. Talk to anyone born after 1990, and they’ll marvel at the thought of having to physically go to a library to look up research for their term paper. Now, with a click of a button, anyone can access anything. However, what if someone can’t click that button? What if they can’t see it?
Accessibility goes beyond physical ramps and elevators. The doors that the digital world opened were not automatically opened for everyone. For people with hearing, vision, and motor control challenges, the simplest of tasks, like clicking the right button on a website, can be frustrating or even impossible. Software companies, like Tevera, have both educational and moral obligations to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, has access to their part of the digital world.
