Did you know that a number of websites are inaccessible to someone who is blind? That’s because they are, for various reasons, unable to be read by screenreaders—the software used by people who are blind that reads what is on screen.
At Empower Tennessee, our services include website accessibility testing. If you would like to have your site tested, please contact Ashley Moseley—our staff member and a user of screenreading software.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are 285 million people worldwide who, due to some disability, cannot read all consent on a website.
There are 39 million people worldwide who are blind and cannot access any of the content via sight, according to WHO.
Making websites accessible ensures these people have equal access to the web.
