We’re building the world’s first search engine for accessible sites

The internet is where we order groceries, buy clothes, pay rent, find an electrician, and so much more. Millions of people with disabilities struggle to accomplish these tasks because less than 2% of websites are accessible and therefore too difficult to find. accessFind is here to change that.

Why do we need accessFind?

accessFind enables people with disabilities to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities the internet has to offer

Here's the problem

When looking for services, products, or information online, we use a search engine. But since less than 2% of websites are accessible to people with disabilities, the chances of them finding accessible search results is slim to none. This results in a huge accessibility gap and closes them off from so many opportunities and choices.

Until the majority of websites are accessible, we need to find a way to display accessible websites for web users with disabilities.

And the solution?

There are about 200,000 accessible websites, a drop in the bucket compared to almost 1 Billion inaccessible websites. That being said, this is still a significant amount of services, online stores, and informational websites that web users with disabilities would, and should, use today if they knew where to find them.

accessFind is a search engine that will display only accessible websites in the search results.
