A Fully Accessible Website Is A Good Business Decision
Web accessibility enables your customers with disabilities to easily navigate your website and creates a tangible return on investment through their buying power and brand loyalty. In fact, the global disability community is a large, untapped market with a combined disposable income of over $1.2 trillion.
By law, companies, as well as academic institutions, government agencies, and nonprofits are required to maintain accessible websites and applications. In fact, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) based cases, where the subject of the claim was either a website, mobile application or video content, reached a rate of over 10 per day in 2021 with over 4,000 in total, according to a report from UsableNet, a digital accessibility company and partner of The Viscardi Center. That is a 15% increase from 2020.
Ensuring your web site is accessible is critical for both customer experience and legal compliance.You need to be sure that all visitors to your website have fair and equal access to the information on the site. An accessible website is ADA compliant and complies with other federal laws, including Section 508 of the Rehab Act, as well as accessibility standards like the Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) 2.1.
Can You Answer Yes, to These Important Questions?
Is your website accessible for blind and low vision individuals? Have you performed website accessibility and legal compliance audits? Do you meet WCAG standards? Are you ADA and Section 508 compliant?
If the answer is no or you don’t know, you are at risk for legal action.
