Digital Accessibility in Cleveland

What is digital accessibility?

Digital accessibility is the ability of a website, mobile application, or electronic document to be easily navigated and understood by a wide range of users, including those users who have visual, auditory, motor, or cognitive disabilities.

Please visit the Cleveland Accessibility Meetup website for mostly monthly in-person events!

We recommend that you start with the Why Digital Accessibility Matters page, followed by Next Steps.

This site contains information for everyone, as well as role-specific information.

I don’t know what’s going on with the menu bar. It’s supposed to be hierarchical. I’m working on it.

The Abbreviation ‘a11y’

Throughout this site, or out in the wild, you may come across the abbreviation ‘a11y‘. There are eleven letters in the word ‘accessibility’ between the ‘a’ and the ‘y’, so ‘a11y’ is an abbreviation that also cleverly resembles the word ‘ally’. You’ll see ‘a11y’ used on Twitter as a hashtag.
