Your website should be accessible for everyone. Full stop.
Accessibility isn’t an afterthought; it’s the heart of a user-friendly online experience, for everyone. We specialise in Web Accessibility because we believe the Internet should be fair and inclusive, and because accessible websites always perform better than ones that aren’t.
Your website features should enhance the experience for all users. Whether someone is navigating with a screen reader, a keyboard, or voice commands, your website should be a seamless experience for everyone.
What is Web Accessibility?
The goal of web accessibility is to ensure that all individuals, regardless of their abilities or disabilities, can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the content on the web.
When you cross the road, you might use a Green Man crossing. The ‘beep beep’ helps blind people know when it’s safe to cross, but everyone else finds that sound useful too. Because everyone has been considered in the design of the Green Man crossing, it’s more effective for everyone too. This is Universal Design.
Universal Design isn't a niche concept; it's a digital necessity.
Web accessibility benefits not only people with disabilities, but everyone. Creating content that is easy to navigate using a keyboard or providing text alternatives for images can be helpful for people using mobile devices, those with slow internet connections, or non-traditional browsing methods.
We all use lifts, we all use handrails, we all like more space, we all like clear signage. We all appreciate things when they are accessible. We all use things more if they are accessible.
Make your website accessible for all
Our team has years of experience in web development and design for human interaction, meaning that we can code your brand new site to be compliant from scratch, or amend your existing site to work for all users. And we don’t stop at design and development; we can also assist with training, advice, consultancy, and web accessibility auditing.
Our UX Lab includes devices of all types, as well as screen-reading technology. We have built up a diverse database of user testing candidates that include people from all backgrounds.
