A world leader and a pioneer in web accessibility, focused on helping people with disabilities to access digital information: EqualWeb. In the physical world, access for people with disabilities must be ensured. The same goes for the digital world – especially in the times of COVID. People with disabilities and the elderly must be allowed the same access, information, and ability to perform actions on stores and websites as anyone else. With over a quarter of the US population having some sort of disability, this is a market that cannot be ignored. This is the market that EqualWeb is addressing through its groundbreaking accessibility technology, which offers advanced functionalities that enable individuals living with various disabilities to browse the web in a secure way.
Making websites accessible. "We integrate our widget solutions into websites to create a digitally inclusive channel for media consumption". Why is it important for every website to be accessible? In the physical world, it goes without saying that access for people with disabilities must be ensured, such as entrance ramps, accessible restrooms, and so on. The same goes for the digital world – morally, legally, and economically. People with disabilities must be allowed the same access to information, and the ability to perform actions on stores and websites as anyone else can. The idea is to make it an Equal Web – and this is very easy to do with EqualWeb.
