Thanks to screen readers, talking web browsers, and programs that use large print to access the computer; blind and low vision people are surfing the web. These people are looking for all kinds of information and shopping for all kinds of products. However, if your website is not accessible, even the best technology will not allow them to use your website, access your information, or purchase your product. An inaccessible website may steer these people away from your service or product even when they find it in a catalog or store. We can help you by evaluating your site for both accessibility and usability. We are experienced users of the products we sell, and can provide accurate advice about if your site works functionally and how it meets the current code requirements for proper accessibility.
