The Benefits of Making Your Website ADA Compliant
If you fail to comply with WCAG 2.1 and other accessibility standards, you may not only be in legal hot water, but you’ll also be alienating a large part of your potential customer base. If your site is not accessible, the fact of the matter is you won’t be getting as much traffic to your site as you could be getting. Making the extra effort to welcome as many people as you can to your site is a smart business decision as well as the right thing to do to make the internet a more inclusive place.
You may feel like understanding the rules and regulations and finding a way to integrate them into your already amazing website is going to be a huge undertaking. You’re probably right, that is, if you chose to do it yourself. Partnering with a web accessibility expert takes away the guesswork of wondering whether you are fully compliant or if you’re leaving yourself open to legal liability. An expert can make sure that your website has all the features it needs now and into the future as standards change.

Ready to make your website accessible? Let's talk!
Belocal Pro AI Powered Web Accessibility Addon is the only solution that ensures full accessibility compliance at any given time, even on websites that update daily.
Websites that undergo a web accessibility project lose their level of compliance as soon as the first update deploys. After only one year, entire sections of the site become inaccessible.
The reason for this is that websites undergoing accessibility adjustments are often modified or updated. These changes and additions do not undergo accessibility adjustments, which, in turn, create “accessibility gaps” on the website itself.
The more updates and maintenance, the more gaps the website has. Hence, in approximately 6 to 12 months, the site becomes entirely in-compliant. We see this happen every day on websites that have paid thousands of dollars to be compliant.
Belocal Pro's AI doesn't need a human to go through and analyze the website; it utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to do exactly that. These technologies, first and only of their kind worldwide, scan, analyze, and decipher your website every 48 hours, thereby assuring you that your site is compliant and accessible at all times, regardless of any updates you may post.
Accessibility for Every Disability
Over 50 features that people with disabilities can use to tailor any website to their personal needs.
Web Accessibility for the blind:
Optimizing websites for screen readers by utilizing AI and image recognition Technologies
Our system utilizes artificial intelligence technologies to make websites compatible with screen readers. It knows how to scan, analyze, and understand a website's structure, element roles, forms and more, making them all compliant with the WCAG 2.1 accessibility standards.
Beyond that, Belocal Pro's AI provides accurate alternative text descriptions to images (Alt tags) for the screen readers of visually impaired people. This is done by utilizing OCR and IRIS technologies.
Web Accessibility for the Motor Impaired:
Optimization for keyboard navigation used by people with Parkinson's disease and other motor impairments
People who suffer from Parkinson's, amputees, or other impairments are unable to use a mouse effectively. They use computers with their keyboards only while utilizing a selected number of keys.
Belocal Pro AI Powered Web Accessibility Addon automatically ensures that a website is fully navigable using the TAB key alone, including dropdown menus, popups, and forms. Moreover, all navigable elements are given visible focuses and are clickable using ENTER.
Web Accessibility for the Elderly and People with Cognitive Impairment:
A built-in expression, slang, and phrase dictionary
Elderly people, people suffering from cognitive impairments, and people who have had brain strokes may find it hard to comprehend sophisticated language, slang, or specific phrases or expressions. This can make it difficult for them to use the internet effectively.
To enhance their experience, Belocal Pro AI Powered Web Accessibility Addon offers a built-in dictionary that quickly provides a full description of abbreviations and expressions, without transferring to an external website or rephrasing the content itself.
Web Accessibility for People with Epilepsy:
Automatically and immediately stopping blinks and animations of all kinds with the click of a button
People who suffer from epilepsy cannot be exposed to lights and animations that blink or flicker. Therefore, they have a constant fear of using the internet, as almost every website today has a flashing banner meant to grab attention. While these banners are useful in achieving their goal, for people with epilepsy, they are dangerous and likely to provoke a seizure.
Belocal Pro AI Powered Web Accessibility Addon allows people with epilepsy to immediately halt all types of animations (including but not limited to videos, GIFs, CSS or JS) with a single click, allowing them to browse the web at ease, with no fear.
Web Accessibility for People with Visual Impairments:
Color adjustments for the colorblind, alterations of font size and type, spacing, emphases, large cursors, and more!
People who suffer from visual impairments, such as color blindness, glaucoma, and cataracts, cannot enjoy websites and their content to the fullest. This is true for various reasons, such as experiencing headaches derived from contrast issues, missing buttons due to not being able to see their color, or even not being able to read entire text blocks that are poorly spaced and appear blurry.
Belocal Pro AI Powered Web Accessibility Addon allows visually impaired people to adjust almost any aspect of a website to their needs. It can increase or decrease font sizes, add or remove spacing between words, letters, or rows, change the font entirely, or even change colors and contrast.

[With regards to the legislation or not]
- why you should make your site accessible for people with disabilities
The connection between the "ordinary" world and the digital world is getting blurry every day.
For the most part, these are amazing things that create a new reality, but sometimes this reality also brings the less pleasant sides of it.
As there is a need for disabled people parking spots, ramps, elevators and other means to help people with disabilities reach real places, there is also a need to reach virtual places. This subject, which has been pushed aside for more than 20 years, has excluded a large number of people with disabilities from a variety of sites, portals, services and activities, and is gaining momentum that can lead to real change in the daily conduct of our site as site owners, and our conduct as a society that takes care of its people.
Although it seems that the legislation speaks only of site owners obligations, and speaks explicitly of exposing the business to lawsuits in the event of a violation of the law. It turns out that not everything has to be a “punishment,” and there are quite a few privileges to making websites accessible for disabled people, in addition to the great service you are doing by providing website accessibility.
The most important advantage is granting freedom of action to a very large segment of the population (about 20% in every society) to surf freely on the Internet, which is already something significant that contributes to all sides. Additionally, making your site accessible will help you promote your business and to improve the results and possibilities of promoting the website through the Internet and search engines in particular.
This is not an exaggeration - there is a direct link between site accessibility and success factors such as organic search engine optimization (SEO), return on investment (ROI), and the most important factor - reputation and business branding.
The link between the accessibility of websites to organic site promotion (SEO)
One of the most common disabilities is, of course, impaired vision, which hurts the ability to read the text on the site. Today there are programs (NVDA or JAWS for example), which operate on the principle of screen reading: the programs scan the site in a similar way a regular search engine does and relies on different symbols in the code to decipher and determine the context and structure of the material scanned. Each of the scanners looks for different elements (and there are many overlaps like ALT in images), but the idea itself is very similar - (finding special sections on each web page and understanding each of them deeply.) Therefore, certain accessibility actions you make along with the proper construction of the site will help your site climb higher on the search results rankings.
Additionally, three of the most influential parameters in terms of website ranking by search engines are 1. The site relevance, 2. Users avg. Time on site 3. User experience.
Relevance: If your site sells ski equipment and you appear in the search results for beach hammocks, if that user would enter your website and discover that he can’t find what he was looking for- he will leave immediately. In the same way, if people with disabilities reach your site, and it will not be accessible and adapted to them, they will leave immediately. The leaving Action tells the search engine about a lack of relevance for the user and negatively affects the site's ranking, because whether the site is related to the user's search or not is irrelevant to a person who cannot browse it.
Time on site: derivative of the first section. If the site is not relevant or is not accessible to the disabled person, there is not much to do in it. If your site is not accessible, it is reasonable to assume that a surfer with a disability will not stay there for more than a few seconds, and his next action will be to search for a better or more accessible site (of your competitor) that will answer his needs. On the other hand, if he had reached an accessible site, his time of stay would have increased, which would have had a positive impact on the site's ranking. It is important to remember: This is about 20% of the population, not at all a small number of possible desertions.
User Experience: most of the times an accessible site also indicates a better user experience. When we make changes and make content, information, photos, videos accessible - we help not only those with disabilities to get a better experience from our site but all of our users.
In the end, the formula is very simple - an accessible site = a site with more quality surfers, relevant, and has positive feedback instead of a negative one = higher ranking.
