What is Web Accessibility?

Web Accessibility is the “ramps and rails” for barrier-free access to the digital world.

Millions of reasons to be accessible, usable, and inclusive

Digital Accessibility is the right thing to do, required, and the digital path of inclusivity.

Websites and digital content that is not designed and coded for digital accessibility are “broken” for more than 15% of the population. People relying on the use of Assistive Technologies (AT), such as screen readers, cannot access or fully consume digital content unless it has been created in conformance with the Website Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.


15% of the global population is excluded from equal access.


Can you afford to exclude more than 41 million Americans?


Globally, more than one billion people live with a disability that can impede full access or consumption of digital content.

You wouldn’t build a physical structure without accommodations.

More people can reach your business through your website than your physical location.

Do the math. Enable access for all.

Common Misconceptions

People who are blind do use the Internet. Using Assistive Technologies (AT), such as screen readers, they go online for the same reasons as people with sight. As do many people with a range of disabilities.
