What is accessibility testing?
Accessibility testing is a process of ensuring that your website or mobile application meets the needs of diverse users who have to use assistive technologies online. It is the responsibility of web and mobile developers to create an inclusive digital experience for as many people as possible. By performing testing such as through an accessibility audit, you can easily pinpoint which features may create barriers for users with disabilities and take corrective action.
Why invest in accessibility testing?
One in five people in the U.S. has a disability and yet, 90% of websites do not meet basic requirements for accessibility as outlined in the WCAG. This poses many challenges for individuals with vision impairment, hearing loss, and other conditions.
It’s also risky for business.
As more people rely on eCommerce, lawsuits tied to the ADA are on the rise. Companies like Netflix, Disney, and Target have lost millions for neglecting disabled users, and that’s just in terms of legal fees. Considering that disabled workers account for $490B of the U.S. economy alone, it’s safe to say a lot more was probably lost in revenue.
For these reasons and more, accessibility is a must. At a minimum, websites and mobile applications are expected to meet WCAG 2.1 Level A and AA regulations. Meeting WCAG and ADA testing guidelines can save you fines of up to $150,000. The only way to tell if your website or mobile application meets these requirements is through accessibility testing.
