There’s a big movement toward inclusivity, and a simple solution.
Website accessibility lawsuits filed in federal courts jumped 14% in 2021, well over the 12% increase seen in 2020.
Likely you have a website. Most definitely you need a website. What does the mounting risk of litigation mean for your brand?
Some may view internet accessibility guidelines as a thick, sticky layer of red tape – another set of mandates to manage to avoid legal woes.
We see it as much more than that.
We’re happy to say that web development best practice at NK now includes accessiBe. We love how accessiBe adds customizable WCAG & ADA compliance to websites while keeping the intended UX/UI intact. It’s unobtrusive, it gives the user full control, and it works.
Accessibility helps people with limited:
Blindness, Color Blindness, and Low Vision
Paralysis Caused by Injury, Congenital Conditions, and Tremors
Deafness and Other Hearing Impairments
Conditions Affecting Memory, Attention, or the Interpretation of Information
The official Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is known internationally as the industry gold standard. It uses four principles to define accessibility. Within each area are multiple criteria with various success criteria used to measure compliance.
You’re probably thinking … that’s a long list. And you’re right. While certain web design and development principals for inclusivity always apply (ask us about them!), it’s nearly impossible for a single UX/UI to meet the myriad needs of all visitors.
Luckily, it doesn’t have to.
accessiBe tucks a complete set of accessibility adaptations within a single popup menu.
It’s another powerful player in our suite of best practices.
Take it for a spin, use it as a prompt to discuss your organization’s accessibility goals with legal, and let us know what you think.
