Why is Digital Accessibility Important - Video Transcript

According to the World Health Organization, 15% of the world’s population experiences some form of disability. That’s more than 1 billion people.

Add in the aging population, and you have a large number of people that may be unable to access your website or app. Not only are you limiting your digital reach, you could even be opening the door to litigation and lawsuits.

By embracing accessible design, you can deliver a highly engaging and inclusive experience to ALL users, including those with visual, hearing, physical and cognitive disabilities.

Accessible websites also attract more users. They are given preferential ranking by search engines. Plus, they draw more users with accessibility requirements, in many cases, establishing a new group of brand advocates.
