Culture & News

According to U.S. Census data, nearly 1 in 5 Americans lives with some kind of disability. Without being designed, built, and maintained for this user base and their assistive technologies, websites can put up barriers making them difficult or even impossible to access.

Benefits of an Inclusive Website: Increase conversions, demonstrate social responsibility, enhance search engine optimization (SEO), improve overall usability, no sacrifice to design or functionality, mitigate organizational risk

In a society where it's now standard for goods, services, and information to be offered and readily available online, this poses a significant disadvantage to users with disabilities or age-related needs.
