A lot goes into creating an accessible website that users with different disabilities can navigate, operate, and engage with. There’s a basic requirement set out by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that all business sites be accessible to people with disabilities. And there are the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). These help visitors with certain physical, cognitive, and learning disabilities better use websites. But your brand’s website accessibility solution should go further. And that’s where accessiBe comes in.
Why Do You Need a Website Accessibility Solution?
About 1 in 5 people live with a disability worldwide. Not all disabilities directly affect a person’s ability to use a website, of course, but many do—some in ways that unaffected people never realize. Those commonly discussed—like blindness, visual impairment, hearing impairment, motor impairments, and seizure disorders—are just the tip of the iceberg.
It’s only right that website designers, developers, and owners do whatever is in their power to make sites as accessible and inclusive as possible. And beyond it being the right thing to do, it’s also in a website owner’s best interest that as many people as possible can use their site. Plus, it can protect them from liability that may result when a site is found to be inadequately accessible.
And the fact is, accessibility guidelines, standards, and regulations are constantly evolving. There are different ones in place internationally, nationally, and by state. The smartest approach is to find a dynamic website accessibility solution that goes well beyond current minimum requirements and that continues to evolve as technology improves.
