Welcome to Reiter-Consulting!
I'm looking forward to share the topic accessibility for applications and web sites and assist you to make your applications and web sites better accessible.
Why accessibility and what does it do for me?
If you belong to the happy 75% of the over eighteen-year-olds (source: VDK social association Germany), which have no restrictions, at first glance, nothing.
But what does this number actually mean, for example, if you're running a webshop that is not accessible?
It means you got about 25% less customer than a webshop which is accessible.
Conversely this means you'll get about 33% more customers if you make your webshop accessible!
That's a third more customers overall !!!
This number is of course overdrawn, because not all kinds of disabilities hinder a person from shopping in a non-accessible web shop. The tendency in the number of people with disabilities, however, is increasing.
Accessibility is also a concern for people without disabilities, because at some point they may be themselves rely on easily accessible buildings, easy language or computer communication. Because the fact is that only four percent of all disabilities are innate. In most cases causes an illness or accidents the disability.
It can meet everyone, including you!
Internet accessibility is necessary for 30% of all people and essential for 10%!
