accessiBe helps merchants to allow people with disabilities to effectively use their website. This is, most importantly, required by law. And secondly, can help improve conversion rate by an often (and sadly) neglected segment of your audience base.
Here’s the deal, there are a lot of lawyers and individuals going around the web, looking for non-compliant websites, and then issuing a lawsuit. Compliance with the law is mandatory and you will get caught eventually.
This is what makes accessiBe so powerful. Not only do they make your site compliant, they back it up. For all paying customers, their package includes litigation support. Which means if you get sued for not being accessible, they will provide an audit, documentation, and video that refutes that claim, giving you the firepower you need to make the lawsuit disappear. (Now you still have to hire a lawyer and are at-risk, but odds are, the lawsuit will be dropped and they will move on).
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Your main competitors are manual solutions, which can be really expensive to implement and require ongoing maintenance… Any time you change the site, you have to ensure the change is compliant. And any time the laws change, you have to change to become compliant.
There are other, more basic solutions, that help with accessibility but don’t make you fully compliant.
One thing I love about their tech is that if they notice any type of accessibility tool turned on for a browser, they will immediately prioritize their tool and say or show something like “hey, you’ve reached an accessible website, press Alt+1 to enable.”
There are two key metrics that you care about when talking about accessibility - maybe three. It starts with lawsuits around accessibility. The main reason to use this tool is to mitigate the risk of a lawsuit.
The second is increasing conversion from the portion of your audience that needs accessibility.
And the third is about your brand. You are showing the world, especially the world of disabled persons, that you care enough to make your site accessible.
Anyone can setup accessiBe and it doesn’t need to be managed.
Yes! Every store needs to be accessible.
