Web Accessibility Compliance

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 intranet and enterprise 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 2.0), 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 intranet or enterprise 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 defining the web accessibility standard that your organisation would like to or are mandated to comply with. This standard will enable everyone to understand the contributing factors and what technological 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 research and interaction and visual design phases.

HOW WE DO WEB ACCESSIBILITY

During the interaction and visual design phases 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, and apply best practices in order to successfully address accessibility requirements for the widest range of users. Testing conducted with actual users with particular disabilities also provides valuable input that guides our design phases.

What you get

We ensure that the final design solutions that we develop are implementable, screen readable and offer assistive tools that meet the needs of individuals, organisations, and governments regardless of their abilities or limitations.

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.
