Accessibility Spark Launches First AI-powered Shopify App for Web Accessibility Compliance

Accessibility Spark is a leader in web accessibility compliance solutions. With their Shopify app, they aim to make the internet more inclusive and accessible.

Accessibility Spark has announced the launch of the first automated AI accessibility compliance app for Shopify stores. The app will allow the 1.5+ million Shopify sellers to optimize their sites’ accessibility and remain in compliance with Shopify’s requirements without having to understand the intricacies of ADA and WCAG regulations.

Web accessibility compliance is critically important for all site owners. Non-compliance may result in less traffic as well as penalizations by Google and Shopify, reducing site visibility by all potential users. Non-compliance can even result in lawsuits brought against a site for discriminating against disabled users. Thousands of such lawsuits are brought to federal court each year for online store non-compliance.

Most Shopify stores are operated by independent sellers who may not be knowledgeable about accessibility compliance. Accessibility Spark’s new Shopify app provides an automated solution to ensure a store is compliant at all times.

Once the app is installed, it scans the seller’s site to ensure it meets accessibility standards. Within 48 hours, all non-compliance is detected and corrected according to ADA and WCAG compliance regulations. The app will continue to scan the site every 24 hours to detect compliance issues and recommend fixes.

The Accessibility Spark app includes the tools necessary to increase accessibility. It features 100+ capabilities to help store owners increase accessibility for all types of users. They include:

● Automated screen adjustments
● Color and contrast adjustments
● Various text modes for cognitive disorders and impaired readers
● Reading guides for the visually impaired
● Seizure-safe animation pauses
● Optimized navigation for motor impairment
● More

The Accessibility Spark app is not limited to optimizing text content. It also scans videos, GIFs, images, widgets, forms, and pop-ups. It’s the only AI-powered web accessibility compliance app built for comprehensive accessibility compliance on Shopify. And, it’s the only automated accessibility app for Shopify sellers.

“The internet is essential for every individual’s success, but it is woefully inaccessible to so many of us,” commented Clyde Schumaker, Accessibility Spark’s Head of Communications. “With our new AI-powered app, Accessibility Spark will make it simple to massively expand web accessibility to over 1.5 million stores on Shopify, one of the world’s biggest eCommerce platforms.”
