Builds an inclusive web

WCAG standards ensure you’re doing your part in building an inclusive internet where every person can have access to the same information.

Protects you against lawsuits

A lack of accessibility can make your website and company vulnerable to expensive lawsuits. In addition, non-compliance with WCAG can also lead to increased customer support. 

Improved usability

Web accessibility not only makes your website accessible for disabled users, but it improves your overall UX and usability for people with other issues or low-speed internet as well.

Ensures better SEO

An accessible site is usable and therefore, better for SEO. In fact,  Accessible websites are more likely to be featured at the top of the SERPs.

Potential for higher revenue

Creating accessible content enables a more democratic web. In doing so, it has the potential to boost your revenue as you would be increasing your audience.

Ensures you stay compliant

Web accessibility is a civil right for people with disabilities. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), people with disabilities should enjoy equal access to public services. Businesses that are not compliant can face legal issues and social remorse.

Frequntly asked
about Website accessibility

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 are guidelines created by the W3 consortium for making web content more accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities.

These guidelines range from level A to AAA where more the latter has more criteria to pass. Among other things, WCAG 2.1 guidelines ensure screen readers and other assistive technologies are able to successfully interpret the HTML content on a website, making that website accessible for users with disabilities.  

A lack of accessibility will not only prevent disabled users from using your site but also make your company vulnerable to expensive ADA lawsuits.

To eliminate the risk for an ADA lawsuit your website should meet at least the AA-level guidelines, especially if you're working in the healthcare sector.

We use a set of tools to catch any non-conformances and implement any fixes appropriately.

Some requirements may not be detected with automated tools and have to be manually tested against the official W3 curated WCAG 2.1 list of techniques and failures for accessibility.
