Accessibility within reach
Websites, apps, and products that are built with accessibility and inclusive design in mind are more important than ever. As our lives become increasingly digital, including everyone, regardless of their abilities or the device they’re using is a necessity for doing business in our modern world. We put accessible websites in reach for small businesses and nonprofit organizations with limited budgets.

What is Accessibility?
If you ask an average web developer or web designer about accessibility, you’re likely to get an answer along the lines of “Accessibility means making a website usable for people with disabilities.” That’s not wrong – but it’s just a fraction of what true accessibility is all about.
Accessibility is usually defined rather narrowly either in terms of the Americans with Disabilities Act (or similar laws in other countries) or in terms of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Instead, I like to refer to it as inclusive design – meaning designing and building things in such a way that nobody is left out. Rather than focusing on making a website work for people with disabilities, we focus on making a website work for everyone – regardless of their capacity, their environment, or the device they happen to be using.
When we change the way we think about inclusive design, we open up a whole world of possibilities. We stop rushing to solutions that only work for some and focus on really solving the problems we’re facing. Inclusive design means equal access for all.
