The accessibility (“A11y”) metrics will add new functionality and use cases to the existing Analyze, Monitor, and Protect apps available in the Lumar platform, so users can examine both technical SEO and website accessibility issues within a single platform, using a single web crawler

Alongside the new crawl metrics for accessibility, Lumar is also launching website accessibility health scores that help businesses identify, prioritize and fix issues that are preventing their websites from reaching WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) standards for Level A, AA, and AAA compliance. The reports’ logical grouping of issues into different WCAG levels, categories, and subcategories also helps users quickly make sense of the data and understand where to start, rather than being confronted with a long, overwhelming list of accessibility issues.

Why website accessibility matters for businesses today

More than 1 billion people worldwide live with a disability, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), but the vast majority of websites do not presently meet even basic WCAG accessibility standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). 

Of course, improving your website’s accessibility for all users is the right thing to do — that should go without saying. But for businesses looking to reach new customers — and comply with local accessibility laws and regulations — there’s a clear business case for digital accessibility as well. In a new study conducted by Lumar this year, 1 in 4 website-related professionals surveyed cited website accessibility as one of the most overlooked areas in their websites’ health and performance

Despite the importance of website accessibility being well acknowledged by survey participants, 63% of respondents said they had no internal staff or external consultant responsible for digital accessibility efforts. Closing this gap requires a new solution that can effectively orchestrate website management resources to meet accessibility standards. With Lumar’s new accessibility metrics built into its broader website intelligence platform, organizations can now seamlessly get insights into their sites’ accessibility compliance in the same centralized resource that already empowers their SEO, marketing, UX, and engineering teams with in-depth website health monitoring, analytics, and QA testing automation.
