How website accessibility empowers your visitors
An accessible website has several features that can help improve your user experience. Let’s take a closer look at these features.
Easier to understand websites
Website accessibility ensures that websites are easy to understand and use fonts and font sizes that provide an easy reading experience. This includes color. The color of your text also matters. You’ll need to choose a font color that has a high contrast to the background page.
More navigable websites
For users with disabilities, a confusing design makes it extremely difficult to navigate a site. This only becomes harder if they use assistive technologies or depend on the keyboard to navigate. Good accessibility prevents just that.
Making your website accessible can improve your search engine optimization (SEO). This is because search engines like Google prefer websites accessible to everyone in their ranking algorithms. This means that by making your website accessible, you could see an uptick in web traffic.
More leveled playing field
By ensuring that your website can be accessed and used by everyone, you're meeting your legal obligations and opening up your business to a new group of potential customers.
Boosted brand image
Making your website accessible strongly conveys that you care about inclusion and diversity. This can help improve how the public perceives your brand and boost your reputation. It can also help you attract and retain high-quality employees who want to work for an inclusive company.
Reduced maintenance costs
An accessible website is easier to maintain than a non-accessible one. This is because an accessible website is built on a solid foundation of well-structured code and semantic markup. This makes it simpler and cheaper to make changes and updates over time.
Frequently 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 can successfully interpret the HTML content on a website, making that website accessible for users with disabilities.
A lack of accessibility will prevent disabled users from using your site and make your company vulnerable to expensive ADA lawsuits.
To eliminate the risk of 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 must be manually tested against the official W3 curated WCAG 2.1 list of techniques and failures for accessibility.
