Website Accessibility Review
Improper web design can make it difficult for users with disabilities and older individuals with changing abilities due to aging to utilize your website. Those disabilities include blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combinations of these. Website accessibility is most often associated with users with visual disabilities due to the large number of affected individuals. In the United States there are 10 million blind and visually impaired people, with 1.3 million of those legally blind.1 Worldwide about 2.6 percent of the population is visually impaired.2 Search engines are also unable to see and analyze a web pages content in a similar way as screen reader for a visually impaired person does. Therefore, insuring proper accessibility also helps to optimize a website for search engines.
Using a combination of automated tools and manual review, we test your website for compliance with the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 standard. The WCAG 2.0, which was published in December of 2008, provides guidelines to make content perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. Meeting the requirements of the standard requires the use of text alternatives, semantic markup, proper navigation, and distinguishable components. We can also test for compliance with the United States Section 508 standard, if your website is required to be compliant this standard. We then work with you to implement solutions to any issues that exist, without reducing the usability of the website non-disabled users.
