The Business Case for Accessibility
Having an accessible website and supporting digital equality is not just good karma, it’s good for business, too. Worldwide, people with disabilities control more than $8 trillion in discretionary spending. Following COVID-19, online sales and ordering increased dramatically. No matter the industry you’re in, your organization is likely engaging with customers of all abilities online.

Ensure you’re compliant with federal and state laws for website accessibility
Improve search engine ranking
Many accessibility fixes will also improve your website’s search engine performance.
Increase sales & conversions
Allow more people access to your website, increasing opportunities for sales.
Practice social responsibility
Take meaningful action and do your part to make the internet better.
How It Fits In Your Workflow
One of the most challenging parts of creating and maintaining accessible websites is adjusting your processes to shift left with accessibility so that problems can be caught sooner. Accessibility Checker easily fits into your existing website development and content creation processes and helps your entire organization – from developers to content creators – build accessibility-first practices.
Start testing while still in local dev.
Every plan includes unlimited local development and staging sites. Install the Accessibility Checker WordPress plugin as soon as you begin development and it will notify you of problems as you go, even if you’re working locally. You can run scans on-demand, as needed, or set them to run at regular intervals.
Utilize Fast Track to quickly find and resolve site-wide errors.
Prioritize remediation needs and easily identify fixes that will have the biggest impact site-wide. View all issues that exist on your website in one central place or switch to the Fast Track view to see issues grouped by code snippet and ordered by affected page count.
Dismiss issues on a per page basis or create global “ignore” rules.
Not every accessibility problem can be detected automatically. Accessibility Checker creates “warnings” for elements that require manual review. If you’ve determined something isn’t actually an issue, it can be dismissed on a per-page basis or globally for the entire site in one click. Maintain oversite with an ignore log that tracks who dismissed which issues and why.
Collaborate with content managers to correct issues identified in content.
In-page reports identify issues as content is created. No visiting a third-party site to view reports, which means problems are more likely to be fixed as they are created. This cuts down on the need to rework pages after the fact, reducing costs and speeding up time to launch.
Monitor reports on an ongoing basis to correct issues and ensure compliance.
Accessibility is a journey. Ensure your website stays compliant as WCAG guidelines change, and new content or code is added to your site. Use Accessibility Checker to quickly see, at a glance, which pages or posts need your attention and track accessibility over time.
See accessibility problems on the front-end of your website.
No interpreting code snippets. Accessibility Checker can place a prominent highlight around elements on the front-end of your website. Cycle through issues visually and review detailed descriptions of each problem.
Start managing accessibility, natively.
