Why is accessibility important?
Alongside the legal and compliance obligations that businesses have, especially after the recent well-documented lawsuits and rulings. The biggest motivation to ensure the accessibility of your websites and online resources should be inclusion. The content, design or structure of a website should be presented in such a way that does not prevent its use by a user affected with any form of disability. It is estimated that such households with at least one disabled person have a total potential spending power of $249Bn each year. Can your business really afford to continue to exclude these users?
What can your business do to become accessibility compliant?
The good news is that in the majority of cases, this is not a difficult, complex or costly process. Often the changes needed are simple configurations or slight tweaks in design to accommodate all methods of access (such as fully supporting screen readers for visually impaired users.)
