Almost 20% of US users are disabled

According to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau, 51 million people in the US aged 15 and older have a disability:

  • 19.9 million have difficulty lifting or grasping, impacting use of a mouse or keyboard.
  • 8.1 million have visual disabilities. They might rely on screen magnifiers or screen readers. Some have color blindness.
  • The Census Bureau also reports that 7.6 million have a hearing disability. They might rely on transcripts or captions for audio and video media.

 

By making digital content accessible, your organization can reach more customers, increase customer satisfaction and gain a competitive edge over those who don’t include accessibility features.

Testimonials

Tinker Simmon

Tinker Simmons – Springs CPR Training Owner

When I met with Darlene and David, I desperately needed a new website. I really didn’t want to make all the decisions involved with designing a new website and I really had no idea what I wanted it to look like, so like many people, I had put it off WAY too long!! It didn’t matter. I gave them some general ideas and they built the website that I now have that has a design I could never have thought of. David and his Umbrella Local team did exactly what was needed to be done without torturing me through the whole process! This is the way to get a new website with all the specs it needs to make google happy!
