Why digital accessibility is a problem?

Digital accessibility refers to the ability of digital content to be easily read and understood by anyone.

The problem we face today is that digital content is not accessible.

In conjunction with internet growth and available information, it’s no surprise that assistive technologies such as screen readers and mouse alternatives were suddenly in high demand. Unfortunately, screen readers and other assistive technologies could not read web information clearly, correctly, or perhaps not at all. This civil rights violation in equal online opportunity created an uproar that needed to be addressed quickly.

Countries worldwide began adopting a newly created set of rules, regulations, and guidelines made to ensure accessibility. As these changes were being slowly adopted, companies were beginning to face lawsuits and fines for discriminating against those with disability. The urgency and pressure to act increased.

In order to achieve digital accessibility, companies need to analyze their existing online content and rebuild in compliance to the new standards. To do this correctly, developers must study the rules & guidelines, receive training, and then begin the tedious work. Digital accessibility is taking up too much time and costing companies too much money.
