Web Accessibility

Ensuring web accessibility allows access for all

Web accessibility means that it is inclusive to all users regardless of their functional limitations. We provide sustainable, robust, easy to use and accessible web portal design solutions that provide a positive user experience despite any physical, sensory, or cognitive disabilities, work constraints or technological barriers on the part of the user.

ACHIEVE COMPLIANCE

We understand internationally recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), ADA, CLF and AODA amongst others, so you don’t have to be uncertain about your ability to achieve web accessibility compliance.

WEB ACCESSIBILITY FOR ALL

Make your users happy by sharing greater access to your website or web portal in ways that work for them. We ensure that our design solutions are perceivable, operable, understandable and robust to ensure accessibility for all.

Where to start

We begin by identifying the web accessibility standard that your organisation aims to comply with or are mandated to comply with. This web standard will enable everyone to understand the contributing factors and what technological and design considerations will come into play.

WEB ACCESSIBILITY TIMING
The typical duration for web accessibility consulting is 2-4 weeks, and happens usually in tandem with user research and interaction and visual design phases.

How we do WEB ACCESSIBILITY

Starting in the interaction and visual design phases through to coding we work to integrate design features that address specific compliance factors.

We utilize a range of assessment techniques, including advisory techniques for content, automated tools (including screen readers), and apply best web practices in order to successfully address accessibility requirements for the widest range of users. Accessibility testing conducted with actual users with particular disabilities also provides critical input that guides our design and coding phases.

What you get

We ensure that the final design solutions that we develop are implementable, screen readable and support assistive tools that meet the needs of individuals, regardless of their abilities or limitations as well as organisation and government standards.

Designing for web accessibility allows us to focus on users with disabilities to better understand their specific needs, implement solutions that meet those needs and ultimately make inclusive designs that work for all.
