None of the 2020 Presidential Candidates’ Websites are Fully Accessible

by | Jul, 2019

The 2020 presidential candidates are potentially missing on the vote and donations of the one in four Americans who have disabilities. While many of these candidates support disability rights, their websites tell another story.

When the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed in 1990, the internet was just beginning to take form in American households. Today, however, the internet plays a significant role in how its users shop, find resources, and even vote. The ADA does not currently enforce that websites must be accessible. However, by neglecting to ensure a website’s functions can be used by people who have vision or hearing loss, we are essentially telling this audience block that they don’t matter. We are telling them their voice doesn’t matter. 

In the article below, Time magazine explores the issue of inaccessibility, particularly within the presidential candidates’ own websites. While this mistake may not be intentional, it’s paramount that all websites are accessible to its users.

"WP Always was great to work with. We had them improve our web vital scores and set up a CDN for our site. Communication was a breeze and since technical SEO is not necessarily my forte, Ryan gladly held my hand through the entire process and took time to explain the changes that would take place. Our scores have improved dramatically from failing to passing scores in Search Console. I will most definitely be contacting him again if we need any kind of tech SEO wizardry."
