Most websites can not (and often should Not) be compelled to meet all accessibility standards.
Many of the most important pages on the web would lose their pleasing design and interactivity if they had to be accessible compliant. Pages on a site can not be isolated and fixed independently. The article “Web accessibility” on Wikipedia, for example, has 120 errors.
Wikipedia would have to change the entire framework of their site to make this page accessible. In doing so they’d have to train their entire staff of contributors on in depth accessibility practices. For example here’s one of the error’s from Tenon.io: “This link text is uninformative: Do not use generic text in links. Use text in the link that accurately and concisely conveys where the link goes.” That’s actually important, but it’s one of 100s of best practices content creators need to learn for accessibility.
Wikipedia is not an outlier. CNN, a company with very different staffing and financial resources, is inaccessible to many millions of people. They have over 130 errors on typical pages. Amazon.com has over 57 on their homepage last we checked.
