The Increasing Importance of Web Accessibility & Equality

The internet should be available and accessible to anyone, that is why we are committed to powering websites that are accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.

Why Accessibility Matters
  • It is an issue of equality – an accessible website means ensuring that everyone is given fair and equal access to site services and information.

  • Increase engagement and search engine optimization – accessible websites improve usability, reduces bounce rates, and increases conversion rates.

  • Extend market reach – recognize the significance of serving your entire customer base.

  • There are legal implications – have peace of mind for mitigating the risk of web accessibility lawsuits.

  • Stay ahead of your competition – 98% of websites are inaccessible.  Boost brand perception and show that accessibility is important to your business.

Our team aims to adhere to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level.  These guidelines detail how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with these guidelines helps to ensure that websites are accessible to all people: blind, motor impairments, visual impairments, cognitive disabilities, and more.

Makes your websites accessible to people with disabilities, and compliant with the WCAG, ADA, and other accessibility legislation.
