Accessibility : Engineered web design

Design for all users out there: and tested by humans!

We place great emphasis on both accessibility and usability, so all Internet users can access your website and find what they are looking for quickly and efficiently.

We can also ensure your website is legally compliant under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), and strongly believe in adopting the W3C's Web Standards.

We are also familiar with other thrid party web standards such as the RNIB (See it Right) & Bobby Watchfire to name a few.

Our web accessibilty services include:

  • level A to AAA accessible website design and development & beyond
  • consultancy
  • user testing
  • screen reader optimisation
  • website maintenance
  • accessible content management systems
  • training for accessible web publishing

Web accessibility levels can vary but the practice of making websites usable by people of all abilities is one of our design strengths. Your web site will be correctly designed, developed and edited, all users can have equal access to information and functionality.

We offer a wide range of accessibility friendly CMS modules that can lift your website so more users can access your publishing.

For instance: Our server-side session style sheets offer large and/or enlargable text and images, so it is easier for users with poor sight to read and understand the content. We offer a wide range of contrast variations so that a wide range of site abilities are catered for!

Our Ethos is make your design as great as possible and provide functionaility that makes the content available for all to find. We dont advocate to the lowest common denominator of design flexibility, and encourage you to set accessibility standards so that they are tested by humans - and not just web based validators!

And we can also train your publishers to write in plain language, so users with dyslexia and learning difficulties are better able to understand the content. When sites are correctly built and maintained, all of these users can be accommodated while not impacting on the usability of the site for non-disabled users.
