Most studies suggest that about 20% of the population has some kind of disability. While not all of these disabilities prevent comsumers from using the web, with that large of a consumer base you want to ensure your website has the ability to be accessed by everyone who wishes to view your content. Disabilities that can impact Internet use can be categorized as, visual (blindness, low vision, color-blindness), hearing (deafness, hard of hearing), motor (Inability to use a mouse, slow response time, limited fine motor control), cognitive (learning disabilities, distractibility, inability to remember or focus on large amounts of information), and seizure disorders (flashing lights can cause seizures). Websites must be designed with these accessibility considerations in mind.
With the advent of mobile devices for webpage view, and the importance such vital web companies like Google place on their display and content, this provides a whole new set of challenges. Websites that were just mainly viewed on monitors years ago, must also be coded to be viewed on mobile-sized viewports. This adds to the complexity when also trying to view on devices used specifically for persons with disabilites.
Accessfull LLC has been performing web accessibility assessments for over 5 years. We can determine accessibility limitations on your current site and work to make your website fully compliant with current accessibility guidelines and laws. The best solution is to contect us early in the design process. Building accessibility into a website from the onset is much easier and much more cost effective than trying to retrofit accessibility into a site after the website is complete. Every site we design makes accessibility a priority, and is designed into the site from the onset.
