Web Accessibility for Social Impact

August 10, 2021 | Webinar

Attend for Free

Web accessibility is an absolute necessity in the modern business world.

Not only is it the right thing to do and an opportunity to improve reputation and revenue, but it’s also the law. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, all places of public accommodations need to be accessible to all. In 2018, the Department of Justice reaffirmed that websites are indeed places of public accommodations, so pretty much any website in the US must be accessible to people with disabilities.

There is a very wide range of disabilities that can impact how someone uses a website, from blindness, to motor impairment, to epilepsy. Catering to all of those can be a challenge, especially when your development team needs to do it manually. In this webinar, we’ll discuss why and how you can and should make your digital presence accessible to all, without breaking the bank and without months of development work!

Build skills in:
  • How to make websites accessible
  • How various disabilities impact how people use the internet
  • How to check if your site is accessible to people with disabilities
This webinar is for you if you:
  • Have a website
  • Work with other companies or the public
  • Want to increase your potential revenue by up to $490B per year (the amount of disposable income the community of American people with disabilities has annually)!

Rafi is a professional dog person and an amateur musician, and enjoys learning about space and astronomy in his spare time.

Web Accessibility for Social Impact
accessiBe utilizes two applications that together achieve full compliance with the WCAG 2.1 AA, the only internationally recognized standard for web accessibility. The accessibility interface is responsible for all the UI and design-related adjustments, while the AI-powered background process handles the more complex requirements – optimization for screen-readers and for keyboard navigation. Without accessiBe, the process of web accessibility remediation is done manually. This takes weeks and costs tens of thousands of dollars. But what’s most concerning about manual remediation is that once it’s finished, it gradually gets ruined due to browser, CMS, and of course, website updates. Within months, a new project is needed.

Shelling out thousands of dollars multiple times a year is not something most businesses can afford. By making web accessibility effortless, affordable, and continuously maintained – accessiBe changes the game.
