Here’s how to make your website more accessible

There are many things to consider when setting up a website, and accessibility is one factor that can sometimes be overlooked. An accessible website is one that’s optimized for all people, including those with impaired vision or hearing, motor difficulties, or learning disabilities. 

Having an accessible website is not only a responsibility against discrimination, but it’s also a legal requirement in several countries, and you open yourself up to lawsuits by not adhering to the guidelines. 

Additionally, from a business marketing perspective, the design and functionality features mean that accessible websites perform better and are higher ranking in search engine lists. Your website is therefore more likely to gain attention from a larger potential audience when it’s accessible to everyone.

Here are the facts

According to WHO, over a billion people in the world – 15% of the global population – are living with some form of disability, and

Must-read developer content

The JIT compiler is designed to bring performance improvements to web applications by turning code into instructions for the CPU at runtime. Meanwhile, union types is a feature that allows data of more than one type to be held by a variable.

Agile is changing software development. Here’s how one company made the switch

Digital transformation is highly prized but poorly understood. While more than two-thirds (69%) of directors want their organisations to accelerate digital business initiatives, as many as 80% of IT leaders fail when they try and change their organisations for the better.

The reason for failure is often a lack of alignment between IT and business leaders. Too many digital transformation projects still focus on changing back-end systems at the expense of involving line-of-business managers in the development of front-end services.

The best way to deliver digital transformation success, suggests Joe Soule, CTO at Capital One Europe, is to build Agile, cross-business teams that work to build creative solutions to customer challenges.

At Capital One, Soule has helped the bank move away from legacy ways of working and towards an investment in software engineering capability and Agile methodologies. It’s a long-term

Here’s Where People Shell Out the Most and the Least for Internet

The price differences from state to state for internet access, a modern necessity, can be staggering. And internet access is especially needed in these pandemic times, with the rise of online school, remote work, video chatting, job searching, and gaming.

HighSpeedInternet.com released a report on how much the cost of internet varies across the US in 2020. The data analysts took information from 350,000 internet customers spanning the US, found the average monthly price for internet in each state, and then broke down those values to average price per Mbps (megabits per second). The price per Mbps better reflects the internet speed quality, according to the analysts. 

The top ten most expensive states for internet access, according to the report, are Wyoming ($7.84), North Dakota ($7.57), Montana ($7.28), South Dakota ($7.17), Virginia ($6.74), Iowa ($6.34), New Mexico ($6.23), North Carolina ($5.87), Alabama ($5.82), and Nebraska ($5.43).

This story is part of Elections 2020, CNET’s coverage of the voting in November and its aftermath.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has beaten President Donald Trump in a contest punctuated with wild rumors, false reports and premature declarations of victory. The end of the election, however, hasn’t meant an end to the misinformation.

Additionally, baseless claims of election fraud from a variety of sources have also swept Twitter, as well as YouTube and Facebook.
