WCAG 2.1 AA Audit
We enable organisations of all sizes to take a complete new approach online. Individuals are spending more time online, accessing information, making purchases, and staying close to friends and family. But 20% of the population are unable to enjoy the benefits of using the internet due to a disability? The time has come to make sure everyone has access to these amazing benefits. We are early adopters of standards currently only legally required of Government departments and some charities. You can too with our WCAG 2.1 AA Audit Certification and Accessibility Statement Service.
What makes website accessibility so important?
Making the online world and opening up the digital economy to 20 % of the global population is sensible and innovative. Organisations and businesses should make their online content as accessible as possible. It makes sense surely especially to businesses to not exclude one fifth of the population from being able to access and purchase goods a service. When we become inclusive, we become stronger as a whole. Making the effort to include a previously uncatered for market will put you above your competition.
How does WCAG 2.1 for businesses and corporations work in the private sector?
Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations do not cover the private sector in the UK. However, private companies in the UK are still legally required to comply with the Equality Act 2010. The Act makes clear the requirement that UK providers of goods and service are not allowed to discriminate against disabled people.
A lack of digital accessibility will hinder a company’s potential success. In 2022, with an increase in e-commerce and online sales, it would make sense for companies in the private sector to be doing all they can to make their websites accessible. Why miss out on a rapidly expanding market. The WCAG 2.1 and subsequent additional guidelines need to be at the forefront of your website design and development.
WCAG 2.1 for big businesses, why it makes sense.
For any business, It makes sense to use our WCAG 2.1 AA Audit Certification and Accessibility Statement Service.
The web content accessibility guidelines are not just a set of arbitrary rules. These are a set of standards that have been designed to make the internet non-discriminatory and accessible for everyone. The guidelines allow individuals with varying levels of disability to access and use the internet in an equivalent way as able bodied users. This guidance should help your website and business, as well as your clients and customers. According to the UK government Family Resources Survey there are currently in excess of 14 million people in the UK with a disability. Over 20% of us will be affected by a disability as some point in our lives. Ignoring such a large portion of the population is probably costing your business lost sales all because your website is not accessible for everyone.
