The digital world is evolving, and so are the standards that ensure it remains accessible to all. With the European Accessibility Act (EAA) set to become law across EU member states in June 2025, understanding and preparing for its requirements is more critical than ever. This transformative legislation will require all businesses looking to operate within the EU to ensure their digital products and services are accessible to everyone, regardless of ability.
