accessiBe is a game-changer in web accessibility, simplifying and streamlining the process of becoming accessible and ADA compliant using AI, machine learning, and computer vision. The accessWidget ensures your site will be brought up to the global accepted standard of WCAG 2.1 AA compliance, meeting the Americans with Disabilities Act Title III for places of public accommodation.
By implementing accessWidget you open your business to an underserved portion of the population. Around 20-25% of the population currently lives with a disability that makes internet usage difficult or impossible without the use of assistive technology. This solution allows them to access your site and services, potentially bringing you business from a population you may have been unaware of. The disability community holds significant spending power, making web accessibility a valuable tool.
From a branding perspective, inclusivity and diversity are essential in today’s world. Major companies have put out campaigns promoting accessibility and inclusivity, recognizing the value in catering to all customers. Implementing an accessibility solution on your website shows your commitment to creating an inclusive environment, making your brand stronger in the process.
Additionally, there are tax benefits that apply to web accessibility as well. For those who apply, you can receive a 50% tax credit based on what you spent on accessibility that year. This adds another layer of value to implementing an accessibility solution on your website.
The benefits of implementing an accessibility solution on your website are numerous. From mitigating legal risks to opening up your business to an underserved population and creating a stronger brand, accessiBe’s widget provides a valuable tool that every website owner should consider.
