Beyond Compliance – Accessibility is Good Business
by Angela Watt on 15/08/2023
Web accessibility isn't just about ticking boxes for compliance or averting potential legal challenges. Instead, it's about unlocking a realm of opportunities. When your site is truly accessible, you’re not only reaching out to the 15% of the world’s population with disabilities, you're also enhancing user experience for everyone.
User Experience & Brand Loyalty
Think about it. A site that loads quickly, is navigable with a keyboard, uses clear and concise language, and offers alt text for images provides a superior user experience for all visitors. By prioritising accessibility, you are signalling to your audience that you value and respect their time and needs. This, in turn, fosters trust and loyalty—key ingredients for sustained business success.
A Digital Reputation that Resonates
In an era where online reputation can make or break businesses, those that champion inclusivity often enjoy heightened brand positivity. An accessible website amplifies your commitment to social responsibility, creating a ripple effect that can positively influence stakeholders, partners, and customers.
Future-Proofing in a Dynamic Landscape
The digital landscape is ever-evolving. Devices, browsers, and technologies come and go, but the universal need for accessible content remains consistent. Building your website with accessibility in mind is akin to laying a robust foundation. It ensures adaptability and relevance in a world marked by technological change.
