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.
Inclusion: The Missed Opportunity
Nearly 20% of Americans live with a disability, however most websites are difficult or impossible for people with disabilities to navigate, understand and consume. This means that people with disabilities are often locked out of the modern digital worlds of shopping, banking, education, and entertainment.
What is Digital Accessibility?
Digital accessibility ensures that people of all abilities can navigate, understand, and fully participate with digital experiences such as websites, mobile applications, video, and online content.
Digitally accessible content is designed for:
- People who are blind or low vision
- Those who are deaf or hard of hearing
- People with cognitive disabilities including attention deficit, dyslexia, autism and more
- People with physical or mobility disabilities
- The aging population
