web accessibility myth 1Digital Accessibility Myth #1

"Accessible websites are ugly and boring."

Let's debunk this myth. Just because many accessible websites are, shall we say, unattractive, they don't HAVE to be.

This myth is based on the technology limitations that existed years ago. Nowadays, the tools and techniques used to make websites accessible are available in all web editors. Whether or not the site is attractive or not is a reflection of the time and effort put forth by the designer.

If you still don't believe us, all you need to do is look at the site you are reading right now! This beautiful (if we do say so ourselves) site is fully accessible to people living with disabilities and using assistive technology.
