Accessibility is not just a good idea, it’s the law.
Below is information about our partnership with accessiBe to ensure ADA compliance. More information about website compliance issues that could impact you can be found in our previous newsletter we sent in October. If you haven't read it, please take a look here.
Our newsletter engine has been moved from slabmedia.com to news.slab.media. We did this because of changes in google’s email handling and adverse interactions with slabmedia’s cloudflare account. You can see the crosslink at slabmedia.com.
We can now help our clients make their websites accessible using accessiBe’s AI-powered solution, promoting internet accessibility for the disability communities.
Slabmedia has partnered with accessiBe, the market leader in web accessibility. Slabmedia will join the accessiBe Partner Program, which is designed to provide web and digital agencies, freelance developers and marketers, website and e-commerce builders, hosting services, and others with the tools needed to make their clients’ websites accessible for people with various disabilities. As a result of the partnership, Slabmedia will be able to utilize accessiBe’s AI-powered solution, accessWidget, to help create websites for their customers that are accessible and ADA and WCAG 2.1 compliant.
In addition, accessWidget also performs 24-hour automatic maintenance scans of any new and updated content and provides monthly compliance audits. Not only is providing an accessible website the ethical decision also boosts the brand’s reputation, opens a consumer base to disability communities totaling over one billion people globally, and minimizes the risk of being exposed to legal action.
“Joining the accessiBe Partner Program was a no-brainer for us,” said Jim from Slabmedia. “We are thrilled to provide our clients with the ability to make their websites available to everyone, while also achieving compliance and mitigating legal risk.”
“We are committed to partnering with professionals, from web agencies to freelance developers and marketers, to equip them with the tools they need to open their client's websites to the disability communities,” said Shir Ekerling, co-founder and co-CEO of accessiBe. “We are thrilled to partner with Slabmedia to help their customers achieve and maintain web accessibility. This is an important part of participating in global inclusion efforts.”
