The State of Digital Accessibility | Watch On Demand
“The power of the web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.” – Tim Berners-Lee, Inventor of the World Wide Web
In 2019, plaintiffs filed a record 11,053 accessibility lawsuits based on alleged violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act - an 8.8% jump from 2018.
In 2021, with more of our lives spent online, digital accessibility and accessibility compliance can’t be ignored. By ensuring all digital experiences are accessible, companies can improve their customer experience while also avoiding costly penalties.
