Forbes: Understanding The Importance Of Web Accessibility

Understanding The Importance Of Web AccessibilityWebsite accessibility is becoming increasingly important in 2023. It is crucial for websites to be accessible to all users, including those with disabilities of all kinds. It allows them access to the same information and services that are available to everyone and includes things like news articles, online shopping, online banking, government services and more. By making websites accessible, we are ensuring that everyone has equal access to online content.

One of the main reasons for the importance of website accessibility is the growing number of people with disabilities. According to the World Health Organization and the CDC, 16% of the world’s population, and 26% of the U.S. population, have a disability. That’s over 1 billion people worldwide and around 86 million people in the U.S. who may be unable to access websites that are not designed with accessibility in mind. This can include physical, sensory, cognitive and intellectual disabilities. With such a large portion of the population affected by disabilities, it is essential that websites are designed to be inclusive and accessible to all.
