On average, there are 51.4 accessibility errors on the homepages of the top one million websites, according to data captured by WebAIM in 2021. That statistic becomes even more significant when you realize that over 75% of Americans with disabilities report using the internet on a daily basis, according to Pew Research Center.
In this episode, our guest host and Director of Front-End Development and Accessibility at Americaneagle.com Nick Goodrum talks with Jennifer Chadwick, Global Senior Accessibility Consultant at Siteimprove. They discuss why every business needs to be compliant, the future regulations of accessibility for websites, and more.
