eSSENTIAL Accessibility (eA), an Accessibility-as-a-Service platform, announces a strategic partnership with Contentful, a content platform for digital-first business. Through this partnership, Contentful users will now be able to leverage the power of eA’s comprehensive solution to help achieve and maintain compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other global accessibility regulations, and better serve all users.

More than one billion people worldwide live with a disability. If a digital experience isn’t designed and developed following accessibility standards, many people with disabilities will not be able to navigate or use that content. Creating accessible digital experiences is also a legal requirement. The number of ADA lawsuits and legal demand letters alleging non-compliance is on the rise. This partnership will improve businesses’ ability to deliver inclusive, accessible, and legally compliant experiences across all devices and channels.

“As businesses push boundaries into new digital frontiers, they must embrace inclusivity. Through our partnership, we are empowering Contentful’s customers to achieve accessibility compliance while continuing to build innovative and engaging experiences for all,” said Mark Steele, Co-founder and CEO at eSSENTIAL Accessibility. “Contentful is a leading content platform that can help organizations deliver inclusive experiences on every channel. This partnership is already delivering great value to our mutual customers by incorporating digital accessibility efficiently into their custom tech stacks.”

As business is conducted through digital channels with increasing frequency, content plays a crucial role in the success of organizations and brands around the world. Contentful unifies content in a single hub and structures it for use in any digital channel so digital teams can assemble content and deliver digital experiences faster and at scale.

“This partnership with eA means our customers and partners will have access to a comprehensive accessibility platform that we trust and can recommend,” said Jeff Blattel, Director of Technical Partnerships, Americas at Contentful. “Contentful is designed to be flexible and adapt to the needs of our customers and the demands of their customers, which include accessible digital experiences. Leveraging the eA platform will make it easier for our customers to achieve and maintain ADA compliance.”
