How many people on your site need accessibility?

March 15, 2022

Why should you bother making your site accessible? Because more people need it than you might at first think.

Even if you discount the 3-in-4 people who wear glasses or contact lenses, at least 1-in-5 people have a disability.

That's 21% of your audience. Why would you shut out 21% of your audience?

Then there are people with 'temporary' disabilities - poor lighting/environment, using their phone/computer with one hand because of injury, and so on.

Finally, good accessibility makes things more usable for everyone.
