20% of Americans cannot access digital media.
As our population continues to age, that number keeps growing. However, the vast majority of digital content does not meet even the minimum accessibility requirements.
We’re going to change that.
THE INCLUSIVITY OPPORTUNITY
Today, nearly 20% of Americans live with a disability — and digital content is difficult or impossible for them to navigate, understand and consume.
What’s more, even when content meets minimum accessibility requirements, it may not actually be usable for those who rely on assistive technology, like screen readers.
ENTER, DIGITAL EQUITY
Digitally equitable content is designed to create a universal experience that’s inclusive of people who are blind or visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing, or those with cognitive and/or physical disabilities, such as the inability to use a mouse.
When you provide technology systems that exceed minimum accessibility regulations, you will improve the value of your brand by better serving your employees, customers and prospects in the market.
Excluding people with disabilities as employees and customers limits business opportunity.
This demographic makes up 20% of the population (and growing). They are brand-loyal, and highly underserved by most organizations.
More than 26,000 new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) discrimination lawsuits are filed each year.
A universally accessible digital experience allows your organization to avoid legal exposure, fines and resulting poor publicity.
Serving this need gives you the opportunity to level up on equity within the organization.
By being inclusive with all audiences, companies can reap diverse intangible benefits, including an improved overall culture.
