5 Reasons Why Website Accessibility is Good for Your Business AND Customers

What is website accessibility, and why is it important?

REACH A WIDER AUDIENCE AND LOWER YOUR LEGAL RISKS WITH WEBSITE ACCESSIBILITY

Website accessibility is no longer a nice-to-have; it’s a must-have for all businesses. In fact, according to one study, 71% of website visitors with disabilities will leave a website that is not accessible (Forbes).

The most obvious benefit of web accessibility is that it helps people with disabilities enjoy your website’s content, products, and services. But the idea that accessibility only aids a specific group of people is a common myth. In actuality, making your website more accessible is beneficial to all of your website visitors. It also provides advantages to your business in several other ways – and some of them may surprise you.
