Making your site accessible to all users is not only the right thing to do, it’s the law. Federal and state lawsuits on behalf of those with disabilities continue to skyrocket. To keep your site safe from legal action, a proactive approach to managing web accessibility is your best bet.
In addition to preventing costly litigation, being accessible makes it easier to sell more goods and services and reach new markets. Having accessible technology will elevate your brand value in the minds of users and rank your site higher from an SEO perspective.
In a number of cases, it was ruled that simply installing an app is too passive of an approach. Businesses named in lawsuits must demonstrate their commitment to web accessibility by outlining the steps they are taking to ensure its continuous improvement. This can mean that the source code of the website should be improved.
Similar to installing an app, a one-time fix does not exist when it comes to web accessibility. Since content and standards are constantly evolving, a site that’s deemed accessible one week may be non-compliant the next. By taking a proactively managed approach, businesses can prevent issues before they arise and avoid “reactive” solutions, which are much more costly.
