Compatible with the W3C initiative Newlyn fonts now include an accessibility character set for designers and organisations wishing to follow these guidelines. These fonts not only enhance compliance on the web, but are also important to UI/UX, broadcast media and signage design.
Accessibility compliance is important to business. There are laws and policies (such as anti-discrimination legislation) that require some services to be available to all. There are financial gains and cost savings from increased web use and usability. There is reduced risk of legal action, legal expenses and negative image. And there are public relations benefits to demonstrating corporate social responsibility.
