Long have been the days where you can’t mention the words ‘web accessibility’ without sending developers and business owners into a panic. Without doubt, a vital aspect of any web development project, but one that inevitably seemed more complicated than it should. Having multiple accessibility standards (ADA, WCAG to name two) didn’t help the situation, as did the different conformance levels… ‘How compliant should my website be? A, AA, AAA…?’
Enter, accessiBe, the #1 automated, AI-powered, web accessibility solution for ADA and WCAG compliance. Did someone say web accessibility was complicated? Not any more! One easy setup later and your website will be accessible and compliant. It doesn’t really get any simpler than that!
Web accessibility has always been important, but consider how much more it has become over the past 12 months. Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, our lives have all become more reliant on technology, the internet and websites to keep us connected and entertained. The transition has been from addiction to all-out dependence.
Just think for a moment, during the course of a normal week during this pandemic, how much do you use the internet? Perhaps it’s for work, or education. To stay informed and entertained. To keep in touch with family and catch up with friends. Maybe even for basic needs, such as groceries or medication. That’s some pretty hefty usage!
Well, imagine now, how different your life would be if you could only access a small percentage of the internet. That’s the reality for many people with disabilities thanks to the vast majority of websites remaining inaccessible. In fact, in a survey of 10M websites that accessiBe ran not too long ago, 98% (yes, ninety-eight percent) of website menus failed. The report goes on to detail many other damning failures, but let’s just stick with the menus for now… If the menu doesn’t work, you’re going to have a pretty hard time navigating the website, right?
Clearly, web accessibility is a wide issue and has taken on even greater meaning this last year, and that would have meant greater headaches for developers and business owners if it wasn’t for the likes of accessiBe. The ease of use, from setup to the way the software intuitively corrects errors makes it a no-brainer. On top of that, the support team are always available to guide users through setup and implementation. Honestly, stop fretting about your web accessibility, and go check it out!
