・Improve customer satisfaction
By ensuring that all users, including elderly people and people with disabilities, can correctly understand the information on a website, it is possible to improve usability and customer satisfaction. ・Gain peace of mind and trust as a company
By taking a stance of creating a website that takes web accessibility into consideration, it will lead to a better image of the company, leading to a trustworthy brand and an increase in the brand value of the company.
・Web accessibility diagnosis report
Based on accessibility standards (WCAG), we identify problems in your website (lack of alternative text for images, contrast issues, etc.) and suggest specific ways to fix them. Since updates and changes to web pages can be evaluated in real time, it is possible to provide an environment that is always easy to use for a variety of users. ■What is web accessibility?
