WITH Allyable!


We are driven by our mission to ensure that the Internet is accessible to every user, by providing the most advanced tools for web developers, content creators, marketers, and other businesses to incorporate immediate remediation, continuous compliance and built-in accessibility to their digital assets in development.

Allyable’s team is guided by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), a set of global internet standards developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), requiring digital assets to be built to certain specifications in order to meet accessibility compliance, mainly for users with disabilities. In addition, numerous industries and agencies are required by law to become accessible; read more about some of these regulations: Section 508, ADA, AODA, CVAA, VPAT and WCAG.

Common Accessibility Barriers

Allyable’s platform is designed to identify and remediate a wide range of the most common accessibility barriers for compliance with ADA, WCAG 2.1, and other legislation.

  • Blind/Visual Disability
  • Deaf/Hard of Hearing
  • Motor Disability
  • Cognitive Disorder
  • Epilepsy/Seizures
  • Aging Population

Why is Accessibility so Important?

In the United States, Europe and around the world, principles of diversity and equal access for people of varying races, ethnicities, gender identities, abilities, and more have become a high priority for many governments and industries. HistoricA11y, those with disabilities have been among the most overlooked in our society.

The United Nations estimates that more than 1.85 billion people globA11y—15% of the world’s population—live with some form of disability, which can include auditory, cognitive, physical, speech, and visual challenges. Another 9% are seniors aged 65 and older. In the U.S. alone, over 61 million people have disabilities and 54 million are elderly (25% and 16.5% of the population, respectively). Most of these users likely require assistance when using digital assets, such as closed captions on videos, or labeling graphics and links for screen readers.

Disposable income influenced by people with a disability

From an economic standpoint, consider that this often-overlooked demographic collectively controls a whopping $13 trillion in annual disposable income! That represents a lot of business to lose for digital marketers who are non-compliant with Website Compliance Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG2.1+) or the Americans with Disability Act (ADA).

Despite such regulations, it is estimated that a paltry 1–5% of the leading global websites actuA11y comply with such guidelines. As a result, web accessibility challenges continue to escalate:

    • More compliance violation lawsuits are being filed
    • Traditional remediation is complex and costly
    • Businesses can’t afford to Ignore this issue any longer

With lawsuits from frustrated consumers increasing and billions of people unable to use the Internet as intended, doesn’t it make sense to protect your company while making your website more user-friendly to ALL potential customers?Find out more about web accessibility certification by visiting our resources center or by contacting us today
