You’ve lost a customer and a potential advocate for your product. Designing with this in mind is not only a strong business decision, but also makes your product better for everyone. Think of how adding elevators and ramps isn’t just a benefit for wheelchair users, but also for people with bikes and strollers and suitcases.
