Accessibility is Key to the Success of Your Website

The practice of making necessary adjustments to a website so that people with disabilities can access its content, has become a fundamental consideration for website owners and agencies. As a result, all the sites that we build and manage should follow the website accessibility standards laid out in the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act).

Website Accessibility is not only a moral and legal responsibility, it can help you search engine optimization and website rankings
Website Accessibility can actually help your SEO

Why has accessibility become an issue now? Here are some great answers.

  • The legislative landscape has changed. Hundreds of thousands of business owners and agencies have received demand letters for having inaccessible websites. 
  • As a result of the pandemic we rely on the internet for just about everything. In addition, society is realizing that people with disabilities have a right to equal access to all websites. 
  • Our main motivation for taking this initiative is simply to look out for your interests and make sure that your website is up-to-date in an ever-changing web ecosystem.
