You have a website and you want to see if it's accessible to your users. Maybe you have to recommend websites to others as part of your job and you want to make sure your clients can access the information. Accessibility checkers can provide a quick diagnostic to see if those websites will be accessible. This month we will review how to make the most of these tools with our tips and tricks.

About Be a Digital Ally
Whether you are responsible for your small business's website or you're a social media creator who wants to ensure your content is available for everyone, this series is intended for you. Be a Digital Ally provides entry-level training on the basic principles and skills needed to make any website accessible.
Knowbility is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create a more inclusive digital world for people with disabilities. We help make the internet and other technologies accessible to people who are blind, visually impaired, deaf or hearing impaired, have mobility impairments, and cognitive or learning disabilities. Our goal is to create a barrier-free world of information technology so that people with disabilities can fully participate in digital spaces.
We pursue our mission through three priorities:
Accessible technology matters for the one billion people with disabilities around the world. Improved accessibility means access to healthcare providers and appointments, information technology, digital classrooms and learning, social inclusion and networking, shopping, entertainment, and travel arrangements, voter registration and civic engagement, banking and financial inclusion, & career training and employment.
Accessible digital design means everyone has access to unlimited opportunities to reach their full potential.
