As the world becomes more reliant on the internet, website accessibility has become a critical issue to ensure that all users can access and use websites without any barriers or difficulties. People with disabilities, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive, and physical impairments, can face significant challenges when trying to use websites that are not designed to accommodate them. At db8, we understand the importance of website accessibility, and we offer a range of services to help website owners and developers optimize their websites to be more accessible.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Making websites more accessible has practical benefits as well. One of these advantages is that accessible websites perform better in search engines such as Google. User experience is one of the factors that search engines consider when ranking websites. Accessible websites provide a better user experience, which can lead to increased engagement and longer visiting times. This, in turn, can lead to higher search engine rankings, which means that users can find accessible websites more easily. Businesses can improve their online visibility and reach a larger audience by optimizing their websites for accessibility, while also providing an inclusive and accessible experience for all users.
Our website accessibility services include website audits to identify accessibility issues and provide recommendations to fix them. We also conduct thorough accessibility testing using assistive technologies such as screen readers to identify any issues that may be preventing users with disabilities from accessing the website. Our team of experts in website design and development can help create websites that are designed to be accessible from the outset, ensuring that all users can navigate and use the website without any obstacles.
At db8, we provide training to website owners and developers to help them understand the importance of website accessibility and how to achieve it. We provide guidance on accessibility standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and assistive technologies, and how to test websites for accessibility. With our help, website owners and developers can ensure that their websites comply with legal requirements, improve the user experience for all users, and reach a wider audience.
