The world wide web is available to almost everyone around the world, and is used by all walks of life. With you putting the focus on using as many alternative formats of content as possible then you are opening up your site to many more potential visitors.
Content for Those with Poor Sight
Individuals who are blind or have site problems are often limited to the sites that they can visit. If you wish to cater to these individuals you can use a format content that allows for large print. This can be done by having your content change into large text with a simple command. Another alternative is to give the option for your text to be heard by audio. Both of these uses of alternative formats are relatively simple to set up and go a long way in making your site much more accessible for those that have difficulty seeing.
While there are no specific laws in place for making your website more accessible as a private or business website owner, there are some rules that apply to government websites for example. If you are interested in setting up your website with alternative formats of content you can review what their suggestions are.
Another great advantage of looking alternative formats is being able to have your website read and understood by other ethnic groups. No doubt where ever your target market is it will also be comprised of many whose native language is other than English. You can have it so a visitor can choose to read your language in their native language. Again this is now much easier to set up compared to what it once was.
While any of this may seem like extra work these types of easily accessed by all websites are becoming increasingly popular.
