Defining Digital Accessibility
Digital accessibility means a full range of users, including those who have a disability, can navigate, understand and interact with your digital content. If your website isn't created with these individuals and the necessary assistive technologies in mind, they are unable to interact with your website or digital content.
1B+ people worldwide have a disability
This is no small segment of the population. More than 1 billion people represents 15% of the world’s population. Is your website accessible to the world's largest minority market?
1 in 4
26% of the United States population of adults living with some form of disability. That’s 1 in 4 adults.
Those with accessibility needs who experience barriers on more than a quarter of websites they visit for the first time.
Customers with disabilities who are forced to abandoned a website, and a potential purchase, if the website is difficult to navigate.
