long-time lurker here! I joined specifically so I could comment on your post.

The most effective way I have found to get buy in is to get devs and stakeholders into an environment where they're using a screenreader to navigate their own website.

I agree with all your points - and I'll add to your last. Accessible HTML affects all your users. Google's SEO looks at alt tags, which is a necessity for screen readers but will also help bubble up your website in search results.

Yes, very true! I want to learn more about SEO in general so I can start making more parallels for this!

Also thank you for being a reader! Love hearing feedback :)
