UserWay and Duda Partner to Make Professional Websites More Accessible

Duda adds the UserWay accessibility widget to its app store, ensuring website professionals can keep sites accessible and user-friendly for people with disabilities

UserWay, the leading web accessibility company, and Duda, a professional website building platform, announced today the addition of the UserWay AI-Powered Accessibility Widget to the Duda app store. The UserWay widget can alter any website to make it accessible and ADA compliant by modifying both elements on the site and any inaccessible code that would otherwise limit visitors with disabilities. This creates a more user-friendly experience for the one billion people living with disabilities worldwide. By adding the widget to its app store, Duda now ensures its users can keep their sites fully accessible.

Web accessibility can be complex, with a recent study finding the average homepage to have more than 50 accessibility errors. With so many design elements affecting the ability of a disabled individual to navigate a website, even the most skilled designers may overlook certain elements. Things such as contrasting colors or flashy graphics can affect accessibility as much as font size and missing or inaccurate alt text. Duda, which grows every 17 seconds with a new website created on its platform, is changing this by partnering with UserWay. Adding the UserWay Accessibility Widget to its app store allows for web professionals to keep their creative vision without compromising on accessibility.

“So much of our lives happen online these days,” Allon Mason, founder and CEO of UserWay, said. “Making the digital sphere more accessible should be a priority for every website. Colors, graphics, fonts, and animations all affect website accessibility and many website professionals don’t know this. Teaming up with a company like Duda — which supports the creation of so many websites — can help us create a more inclusive internet for everyone.”

Itai Sadan, Duda’s founder and CEO, added: “We are constantly looking for ways to better serve our customers. Adding UserWay’s accessibility technology to our platform allows web professionals the freedom to design their websites without having to worry about the effects their choices have on accessibility. Some web professionals fear that being accessible will be limiting, but UserWay’s solutions change that. We’re proud that sites created on our platform will now be more accessible for those with disabilities.”
