A great defence of accessibility!

Approximately one of every five people suffer from a disability, which means that you are potentially losing out on 20% of your target audience. If your business had $500,000 of revenue in a month and the site wasn’t accessible, you may have lost out on over $125,000 in potential revenue.

I think this should be $100,000 loss unless I've misunderstood.

I am talking about if you look back at the month with an inaccessible site and you made $500,0000. If you made that accessible you could be making more in potential revenue. That would make the 500k 80% of the revenue they could have had.
