Web Accessibility

The power of the Web lies within its universality. The fact that everybody can access it is a fundamental aspect.

—Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and creator of the World Wide Web

The goal of Glocal Quality Solutions is to be a benchmark for web accessibility. Our mission is to bring our clients' websites to their maximum potential and eliminate barriers to achieve an optimal user experience.

Web pages must be accessible to provide equal access and opportunities to all people.

The United Nations Convention recognizes access to information and information technologies as a fundamental right.

Studies show that, among other benefits, accessible websites have better search results (better SEO positioning) and, by removing barriers, achieve an optimal user experience.

Benefits of having an accessible website include:

- Improving the brand: Diversity and inclusion, which are so important to business success, are accelerated with a clear and well-integrated commitment to accessibility.

- Expanding the market: an accessible website reaches a customer segment that the competition has overlooked. This segment ranges from our seniors, people with temporary or permanent disabilities, hearing problems, or difficulties understanding the language, to people who encounter difficulties navigating with the mouse only, etc.

- Complying with laws: there are laws that require digital accessibility in Europe, North America and many other regions. Non-compliance may lead to serious penalties.

Organizations are realizing that adapting accessibility generates multiple benefits: it reduces legal risks, strengthens the brand presence, improves the customer experience and improves productivity.
