What happens if our website does not comply?

A disabled person can make a claim if a website makes it unfeasible or unreasonably difficult to access information and services. If one has not made reasonable adjustments and cannot show that this malfunction is acceptable, then one can be liable under the Act, and may have to pay compensation and be ordered by a court to change the site.

An accessible website offers huge benefits to your business:

  1. Future-Proofing - A website coded to accessibility guidelines will function correctly in all internet technology, both now and in the future. This will save you re-developing your site every year with some new inventions in technology (e.g. PDAs, web TV etc)
  2. Better Search Engine Rankings - The more accessible your web site is for your visitors, the more accessible it will be for search engines.
  3. Faster Page Loading Times – Using optimized and standard code; have fewer images and generally less ‘bloat’, so your site loads faster for all visitors. A happy visitor becomes a happy customer.
  4. Enhanced Public Image - Advertising the fact that you have adhered all aspects of accessibility will serve you well in all aspects of public relations.
