The Accessible Web Blog
Why is website accessibility important?
The internet has the power to break down barriers and put people from all walks of life on an equal playing field. The web accessibility tools and specifications which allow users with disabilities to browse and use the web are not difficult to integrate into modern web design & development practices. Let’s all work together and make the commitment to create a web that’s accessible to everyone.
Just Good Business
The CDC estimates that 26% of Americans live with a disability. We like to refer to the remaining 74% as temporarily-abled. You wouldn’t close the doors of your location to 26% of potential customers, so why not remove all the accessibility barriers on your website? Web Accessibility is also great for SEO and improves usability for all users of your website. Upgrading your website isn’t an expense, it’s an opportunity.
In many countries, including the United States, having an accessible website is required by law. Section 508, Section 504, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other federal and state laws mandate WCAG 2.0 conformance. You don’t want to receive that letter from lawyers or the government. Making an investment in WCAG upgrades now is better than spending a lot of money on lawyers and penalties later.
