Why Digital Accessibility

At WEI we are committed to access to information we provide in line with accessibility standards and guidelines (Section 508, WCAG video overview). Access to digital content is as critical as physical access to a building for example. Data is an important aspect of all areas of life and it is important that users with disabilities have equal access to all information.
