MAK Digital Design has partnered with accessiBe, a fully automated, AI-powered platform that ensures your website is accessible to those with disabilities, while complying with both ADA and WCAG 2.1 guidelines. AccessiBe helps make websites easier to use for those who are blind, motor impaired, vision impaired, hearing impaired, epileptic, or if they have a cognitive disorder. We at MAK Digital are proud to be preferred partners for integrating accessiBe with our clients.
According to statistics, 98% of websites are considered inaccessible, and lawsuits related to accessibility legislation has increased more than 300% since 2018 alone.
Here at MAKDigitalDesign.com, partnering with like-minded technology companies is a critical foundation to our success. However, having an endless list of "partnerships" for formalities sake, without any true relationship of substance directly contradicts the entire intent of partnerships to begin with! We are very selective in who we build a partnership with, ensuring that it will be enabled for success and that their offering and values are in-line with ours; essentially, we only partner with companies that we as consumers would do business with.
Luckily for us, accessiBe was a no-brainer! Although there are a handful of similar plugins out there, none come close to being as good as accessiBe. With the rise of lawsuits against inaccessible websites, it is critical that we recommend accessiBe to all of our clients.
We are looking forward to a long term, mutually beneficial relationship for many years to come.
AccessiBe was developed side-by-side with people with disabilities. Their process helped ensure that those the product is meant to benefit were able to express their key pain points early on.
Legally speaking, every website on the internet is supposed to be accessible to those with disabilities. However, the majority of small businesses can’t afford to pay the astoundingly high development costs for making their website accessible. That is where accessiBe comes in; with their AI-powered solution, any business is able to make their website accessible for a relatively low monthly fee.
Aside from the legality aspect, it is also important to make sure that your customers with disabilities don’t feel ignored. With accessiBe your site and its functionality accommodate a much wider range of people, naturally leading to higher conversations and a much better user experience.
