In today’s digital age, having a website is a fundamental requirement for any business to remain competitive. However, having a website that is not accessible to everyone can be a significant risk to a business.
In this blog post, we will explore the business risk associated with bad web accessibility and how We Are Volume can provide an instant solution using it’s partnership with the Accessibi solution.
What is Web Accessibility?
Web accessibility refers to the practice of designing and developing websites that can be used by people of all abilities and disabilities, including those with visual, auditory, physical, cognitive, and neurological disabilities. This includes making sure that websites are compatible with assistive technologies such as screen readers, keyboard-only navigation, and voice recognition software.
Business Risks of Bad Web Accessibility
- Legal Liability: In many countries, including the United States, web accessibility is a legal requirement. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in legal action, which can be costly and damaging to a business’s reputation.
- Reduced Reach: When a website is not accessible to people with disabilities, it limits the potential audience that a business can reach. This can result in missed opportunities to connect with potential customers and increase revenue.
- Negative Brand Image: A website that is not accessible can be seen as a sign of a business’s disregard for inclusivity and diversity. This can negatively impact a business’s brand image and reputation.
- Decreased SEO: Search engines like Google and Bing prioritize accessible websites in their search results. If a website is not accessible, it may not rank as highly, resulting in decreased visibility and traffic.
