Join Kiara Contreras for an in-depth discussion in this video The need for accessibility, part of React: Accessibility.
- [Narrator] Have you ever tried to navigate a website that is difficult to use, hard to read, or frustrating to navigate? It's infuriating, right? For those with disabilities, this is what life is like when trying to use a shockingly high number of websites. The internet is a staple in our lives, and is a primary source for information. We use it to pay bills, catch up on news, watch TV, do our banking, apply for loans, shop for groceries, and more. Just like a business' physical location being required to comply with physical accessibility laws, so too must our websites. In 2015, there were nearly 56.7 million Americans with a disability, that's 19% of the population, or nearly one in five people. We don't want anyone leaving a website because a disability prevents them from having the best user experience possible. In this course, we will learn how to implement accessibility features, specifically into a React application.
