Push to Make Websites Accessible to People With Disabilities
“Right now, Dunbar estimates that less than 20% of websites are accessible for people with disabilities. Companies such as Audioeye are trying to change that.", CEO Heath Thompson said during the pandemic, companies began to understand the importance of accessible websites.
“Audioeye retrofits websites or helps design them from the ground up so they are easy to use for people with visual, audial, and motor impairments to make sure the internet is accessible to everyone. Having that accessibility over and across a broad range of disabilities is really important, that’s part of the challenge," Thompson said. “These are some of the challenges that we solve at Audioeye."
In a post COVID world, he said it’s more important than ever.
