What Does Accessibility Mean?
Accessibility refers to the ability for everyone, regardless of disability or special needs, to access, use and benefit from everything within their environment.
It is the “degree to which a product, device, service, or environment is available to as many people as possible.”
How Can My Business Benefit?
Making accessible products is not just socially right, there is also a business value to it.
- Stand out from the crowd. You can use accessibility as a competitive differentiator and elevate your company from your competitors.
- Tap into an untouched market share. Almost 1 out of 5 people in the United States live with at least one disability. This means that almost 20% of the market will not be able to use your product if it isn’t accessible. If you tap into that untouched market, you could see an immediate increase in your revenue.
- Create a smoother experience for everyone. Discover the power of a simplified flow and better usability by making your product easier to use. Removing the cognitive load doesn’t just help the elderly or people with disabilities – it creates a smoother experience for everyone.
