When it comes to accessibility for users with physical disabilities, business websites are under the laws laid down by the ADA, WCAG 2.1, and other regulations. If they fail to abide by the guidelines laid down by these laws, they will invoke expensive lawsuits and penalties.
AccessiBe – A mission to make website accessibility easier
Businesses, in the past, had to embrace manual techniques to check their sites for accessibility issues. This process was very expensive and took a lot of time for businesses to rectify. However, these processes did not free from the lawsuits that often cropped up when new content was uploaded on their sites. The ordeal was even worse for small businesses, as they had to bear the costs for site maintenance as well since they generally could not afford an in-house IT team.
How are businesses benefitted from an AI-powered accessibility tool?
AccessiBe is an automated and simple tool for website accessibility. It has the technologies of machine learning and artificial intelligence to help small businesses resolve their problems when it comes to accessibility and compliance issues. It is a cost-effective tool and can be installed easily within 5 minutes. As a business owner, there are several pricing plans that you can choose from, and they begin from $49 per month.
An automated tool that silently runs in the background
The biggest advantage of this tool is it runs in the background after you install it. It will conduct site scans every 24 hours to ensure your site is accessible and compliant. If you upload fresh content, you will get a certificate of compliance and an accessibility statement within 48 hours to keep lawsuits away.
How are users with physical disabilities benefit from this innovative tool?
This tool has two major applications. The one running in the foreground deals with the simple adjustments that the user wishes to make, like, for instance, changing the color, the font, the contrast, and other simple features on the site. The second application deals with the more complex changes like keyword navigation and screen readers. The user needs to choose the profile that he/she wishes to use to make the necessary changes. They can be done via the tab option with a single click.
The tool makes the site simple to navigate, and it also uses alternate text for images that users with visual impairments wish to access. In short, it takes care of all of your accessibility needs without hassles.
