The development of accessible elements helps ease of use for the general population, designing something to be accessible in the first place will save costs and help avoid possible liabilities, if it isn’t designed to be accessible then the cost of correction and retesting will have to be taken into account. Accessibility, in general, increases the satisfaction and quality of products, in a wide variety of situations, through different devices and for a greater number of users.

By making something that is not accessible you are limiting your reach and excluding 15% of the world’s population, 26% of adults in the USA. 

Web accessibility is important for people with disabilities to find work, as a great part of the poor population is composed by people with disabilities, the limitations of technology extend only to the limitations that the developers set upon it.
