Our commitment to accessibility standards
To create digital experiences that work for all users, we recognize how important it is to follow accessibility standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. These guidelines provide technical standards and legal requirements to ensure that digital content and services are accessible to people with disabilities. As a company, we believe that by meeting and exceeding these standards, we can create a more inclusive digital world where everyone has equal access to information and services.

Why accessibility should be important to
Support for Everyone
Creating accessible digital products that ensure everyone, regardless of their abilities, can access and use them. It’s not just about accommodating users with disabilities - it’s about making sure that your products work for all users, including those with temporary impairments (like a broken arm) or situational impairments (trying to use your product in a noisy environment).
Increase SEO and UX
Accessibility and usability go hand in hand. By creating accessible products for your users, you’re also improving their user experience (UX). In turn, better UX can lead to more traffic, better engagement, and better search engine rankings and optimization (SEO).
Avoid Legal Issues
Creating inclusive digital products can play a big part in avoiding legal issues according to accessibility. In recent years, there has been an increase in lawsuits related to web accessibility, and failing to meet those guidelines can lead to legal challenges, and in general be a bad look for your organization or brand.
