The Law Firm of Sheri R. Abrams Launches Accessible Site Creates a More Welcoming and Open Experience for People with Disabilities
Bainbridge, Georgia February19, 2009 Butler New Media, a Disability services firm announces the official re-launch of the website for the Fairfax Virginia law firm of Sheri R. Abrams.
Located online at (https://sheriabrams.com/) the site recently underwent a comprehensive web accessibility evaluation with real users with disabilities. Through extensive testing and remediation the site now has a variety of accessibility features that are beneficial to people with disabilities who use assistive technology. “As an Attorney who practices Disability Law I felt it was important that my website be fully accessible to those in the disability community” said Sheri R. Abrams.
The site has been redesigned to be among the first to comply with World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines 2.0. This site is one of the first to be completed through ACCESSIBLENET, a bold and ambitious new project aimed at creating at least 100,000 new accessible websites over the next ten years.
The project is the vision of Butler New Media co-founded by a person with a disability, Cornelius Butler. He is an alumnus of Georgia’s High School/High Tech Program and the first person in the nation to start a business after graduating from the program. He wanted to provide an easier way for people with disabilities to access online resources. He realized as a legally blind individual that people with disabilities have unique needs, wants, and desires that are currently not being addressed by website owners. “I wanted to make it easier for website owners to ensure their sites are usable by all people, regardless of ability. I believe that this project will break new ground in building awareness about the disability community and market” said Butler
With an estimated $10 trillion of collective spending power, the disability community is a market that simply cannot be ignored by website owners.
