Everyday many of us take to the internet to find that piece of information we require, or to find the service or product we need. A website can be an effective way of getting your business out there, but what if you are missing out on potential customers? Over 15% of the world’s population possess some sort of disability, your website needs to be accessible for everyone, regardless of ability.
