Did you know that 98% of the web's top 1,000,000 pages are completely inaccessible, with an average of 60 accessibility violations per page on the majority of the sites?
Additionally, lawsuits filed for non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) have significantly increased over the past few years, with 10,982 suits filed in federal court in 2020.
If you work in the tech industry, these statistics may already be on your radar, and perhaps you’ve even begun researching how you can improve accessibility - but now, more than ever, is the time to make taking action a top priority.
Accessibility all boils down to building digital products that allow for an equal experience for all people, taking into consideration users with both permanent and/or temporary physical or mental disabilities. Ultimately, web products should be designed to allow anyone to equally find, navigate, and understand your web software.
Unfortunately the ADA has not created any set guidelines for what makes a website accessible or where to start - however, it is widely accepted and recommended to begin by following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG for short).
To help ensure that your website is fully ADA compliant, we've put together this easy to use accessibility checklist. Simply fill out the form below and you'll receive an email with a downloadable PDF that you can use to perform an accessibility audit on your website.
