In the digital age, the internet has become an integral part of our lives. However, for people with disabilities, navigating the web can be a daunting task. This is where accessiBe comes in. With a vision to make the internet an accessible and inclusive space, accessiBe is revolutionizing the way we approach web accessibility.
The Journey to a More Accessible Web
accessiBe’s mission is to provide an ecosystem of accessibility solutions for businesses of all sizes to create and maintain accessible websites. This mission is not just about compliance with accessibility laws, but about fostering an inclusive digital environment where everyone, regardless of their abilities, can access and benefit from the vast resources available on the internet.
accessiBe’s ecosystem of solutions includes accessWidget, accessFlow, accessScan, and accessServices. Each of these products and services plays a crucial role in the journey toward greater accessibility. They are not “easy” fixes but are part of a process toward achieving greater accessibility. They are designed to work together to help businesses meet legal accessibility standards and improve the user experience for people with disabilities.
Benefits of Accessibility Beyond Compliance
While compliance with accessibility laws is a legal requirement, the benefits of web accessibility extend far beyond mere compliance. An accessible website not only widens your customer base to include the 16% of the population that has a disability, but it also improves your website’s organic reach and visibility on search engines. This can drive more traffic to your website and potentially increase your conversion rates.
Moreover, an accessible website offers a clean and consistent user experience, making navigation easier for all users. This can lead to lower bounce rates and higher customer satisfaction. And let’s not forget the potential tax benefits. Businesses that invest in web accessibility can receive a tax credit of up to $5,000 annually.
Amplifying Business Reach with accessiBe
accessiBe’s solutions are designed to help businesses amplify their reach and improve their online presence. accessWidget, for instance, is an AI-powered web accessibility solution that enables websites to meet legal accessibility standards without making any changes to the original code. It not only helps businesses comply with accessibility laws but also improves organic reach and user experience.
Similarly, accessFlow is an all-in-one development platform that allows businesses to test, monitor, and remediate the accessibility of their websites and web applications. accessScan, on the other hand, is a free tool that analyzes any website’s accessibility and delivers a report with issues that need remediation to comply with legal requirements.
Paving the Way for a More Inclusive Internet
accessiBe is not just a provider of accessibility solutions; it is a catalyst for change. By promoting the civil rights of people with disabilities and encouraging businesses to educate themselves regarding the importance of inclusivity and web accessibility, accessiBe is paving the way for a more inclusive internet.
As we move towards a more inclusive digital world, accessiBe continues to set new standards for web accessibility, helping to ensure that the internet remains a space for everyone.
