Better User Experience
Reach a wider audience
Having an accessible website can increase your audience reach and improve your SEO. It can also lead to improved brand reputation, engagement, and an overall better user experience. By creating an inclusive environment, you are also showing your customers that you care about equitable access – and that’s a huge factor in customer loyalty today.
Diversity, equality, and inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are on the rise, and the best way to take part in these efforts is by adopting web accessibility as a practice. Your position as an inclusive brand will not only attract consumers who remain loyal to those who prioritize DEI, but it will also promote awareness and education for people with disabilities who deserve equal access online.
What is accessibility?
ADA and WCAG – What are they?
Web accessibility refers to making websites usable for people with disabilities. It involves designing and developing websites in a way that people with disabilities, such as those with visual, auditory, motor, and cognitive impairments, can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the website and its content.
The ADA is the Americans with Disabilities Act, an American civil rights law passed in 1990. It’s America’s most important law regarding accessibility and civil rights for people with disabilities. In 2018, the DOJ clarified that the ADA covers web accessibility.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is a massive guidebook that explains how accessible websites should look and operate for people with disabilities. While it is not stated in the ADA, the WCAG has been widely accepted as the industry standard for being ADA-compliant.
