Accessibility Myths

Updated: Nov 7, 2023


There are many questions swirling around web accessibility. Web accessibility is a fairly new concept and there is some misinformation out there regarding this topic. Here are some of the top accessibility myths and why they are incorrect.


Accessibility only affects a small group of people:

Around 15% of the world's population, or estimated 1 billion people, live with disabilities. People with disabilities are the world's largest minority.


Web accessibility is only about adding alt text to images:

There are many things to be considered while making an accessible website - headline structure, functional controls, color contrast and much more.


Accessibility only helps people with disabilities:

Applying accessibility principles improves overall user experience and makes a website more convenient to use for everyone.


Accessibility is only about preventing lawsuits:

Accessibility is about your users. Preventing lawsuits is important, but user satisfaction and company reputation bring a lot of value as well.


Web accessibility has many components, and one major component is ensuring the content uploaded to your website is compliant.
