The phrase "accessibility remediation" refers to the process of removing barriers to accessibility for individuals with impairments. Your website has been effectively remedied in the digital realm if and when it fulfills all of the WCAG requirements.Noncompliance can result in legal penalties, a poor brand effect, and lost income, thus it's crucial to establish accessibility remediation as soon as feasible.
