Reports by CDC say that there is one out of 4 adults has some form of disability in America. This means that about 20% of the people in the nation can’t access nearly 98% of the 350 million business websites that are active in the USA. This is known as the “web accessibility gap” because of the disproportion in the ability to access websites.
Why bank on AccessiBe?
The web accessibility gap is increasing daily- the prime reason being websites are not created keeping user accessibility in mind. Moreover, when it comes to addressing gaps in accessibility, businesses like to opt for the affordable route. Only 250,000 websites are accessible out of the total number of active sites in the USA. At first glance, it might seem to look minimal to you; however, think about the volume of helpful services, eCommerce stores, and other informational resources that users with disabilities are not able to access!

An overview of accessFind– The search engine for locating accessible websites
accessFind helps users with disabilities locate websites accessible to them easily. There are few accessible websites on general search engines. If a user with a disability looks for company/business websites on them, out of the 8 to 10 search results that appear on the first page, the odds are that none of them will be accessible to the user. This, of course, will be very disappointing and frustrating for the user on the search engine searching for information or an eCommerce store to make a purchase.
At present, there are about 5.4 billion searches made online daily; however, for about the 1.5 billion users with disabilities across the globe, the first step to finding an accessible site is almost impossible.
