Thank you so much to Ntara and Andy Didyk for leading our April lunch. Andy’s session communicated what makes a website accessible, why that’s important, and how accessibility is becoming so commonplace, it will soon be the norm in website design.
Organizations now have a corporate social responsibility to create and sustain an accessible digital brand experience, yet many are lagging behind. But in 2015, 70% of websites did not meet basic accessibility standards. Furthermore,
- 22.9 million Americans are blind or visually impaired.
- At least 7.6 million Americans with a hearing impairment are active online.
- In the next 30 years, the number of consumers who are blind or visually impaired will double.
