Accessible Web Sites Get More Visitors

If there is still any doubt about why businesses should require that their web pages be accessible, this report from ElectricNewsNet explains how accessible pages can be viewed by more visitors than non-accessible pages.

It also brings up a good point about maintaining that accessibility standard after the site has been created. Accessibility is an ongoing process, and in order to keep your pages accessible any additions to the pages must also be coded accessibility.

“Accessibility is included in the tender and the developers deliver it on day one, but the people updating the site don’t know what to do,” said Michael Byrne, CEO of EIAS.
