Digital accessibility means taking disabilities into account in service design. It greatly widens your potential audience and ensures a better experience for all users. In 2020, all public service websites must meet the new EU accessibility standards.

Even if you're not a public service provider, making sure your web service is accessible should be among your top priorities.
According to the World Health Organisation, 1 in 7 people experience some sort of disability. And that does not even take temporary disabilities into account.
Simply put: if you neglect accessibility, a great number of users are either having a bad experience or cannot use your service at all.
