For a business, accessibility opens your products and services to an estimated 38 million Americans alone who have a severe disability, which most likely requires some form of accommodation. A poorly accessible or inaccessible Web site creates frustration among impaired users. This frustration can create strong negative feelings about your business among the impaired. Naturally, it results in lost sales opportunities. In extreme cases, a highly inaccessible Web site can harm your organization in the form of legal actions from individuals who are not receiving the electronic version of reasonable accommodation required under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
For an organization seeking to provide goods and services to the US government, Web site accessibility is a requirement for doing business. The primary law many are familiar with is Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. However, the US government has over a dozen laws, guidelines and memos with numerous subsections which may apply to web accessibility requirements. Beyond accessibility for external users, a number of regulations address non-discrimination and reasonable accommodation for your staff. Moreover, revisions and new legislation keep the compliance landscape constantly changing.
