Making your website accessible to people with low vision or hearing loss could introduce your goods or services to tens of millions of new customers.
Consider, for example, that The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates about 12 million people have low vision and about 46 million have hearing loss. And, the CDC expects those numbers to increase because of more incidents of diabetes, which interferes with vision, and our rapidly aging population.
Providing people with the assistance they need to access your website is a good business practice. It’s also necessary to comply with federal regulations.
