What is accessibility?
Accessibility means that digital service is usable for everyone. Usability in digital service takes into account people with special needs like limited visual, physical or cognitive abilities. Usable digital service is easily accessible with software and devices designed for special needs.
Why you should take accessibility into account when designing your digital service?
Accessible digital service supports equality and makes service usage possible for wider group of users. In Finnish public administration services and those working for them accessibility is defined by law. Paying attention to accessibility when designing digital service also improves overall user experience.
