Law and compliance
In many countries, including the United States and those in the European Union, there are laws that require websites to be accessible. Making the website accessible is therefore a legal obligation.
According to the European Accessibility Act starting in 2025, large companies will have to provide accessible websites.
When a website is accessible, it can be used by a wider audience. This means that the website can reach and engage a larger audience, including people with disabilities.
An accessible website can be indexed better by search engines, increasing the visibility of the website.
