It’s now the standard for goods and services to be offered online. Websites offer wider selection, lower prices, and added convenience compared to traditional brick-and-mortar storefronts. According to U.S. Census data, nearly 1 in 5 Americans live with some kind of disability. These range from diminished vision or hearing with age, to lifelong visual, auditory, motor, or cognitive disorders. Websites can put up barriers making it difficult or even impossible for these users to access. Without being designed and built with considerations for individuals with disabilities and accommodations for assistive technologies, this poses a significant disadvantage in a society driven by unprecedented access to information. Ensuring an accessible web experience for all users isn’t just the right thing to do. Benefits of incorporating accessibility into your team’s web strategy include:
