Despite what many people may think, the past year has highlighted that many websites used regularly are in fact, not accessible for the vast majority of users – particularly those with various differences and disabilities. Even the most basic aspects – such as navigation menus – lack the features required to make it accessible for all users, with a huge proportion of existing sites proven to be inaccessible in some form or another.
While website accessibility has caused headaches for many web developers over the years, by trying to achieve ADA and WCAG compliance certificates for their sites and simultaneously meet a range of conformity levels, new technology has been developed to help relieve web developers and business owners of their accessibility-related headaches, simplifying the process exponentially.
Who Are accessiBe?
Considered by many to be the number 1 automated, AI-assisted, website accessibility solution, accessiBe have utilized innovative technology to widen the sphere of the internet so that it is accessible to everyone, everywhere.
With the sudden increased reliance on the internet for even the most basic of needs due to the pandemic, the past year has highlighted the need for accessibility on a wide range of websites. Previously, it was largely unknown how poor many websites’ accessibility standards were, particularly with regard to those with disabilities. The pandemic meant that more and more people around the world had to use the internet to shop, work, and keep in touch with loved ones; but, for many, it was suddenly painfully obvious that a huge volume of the internet was simply unavailable to them and their needs.
