Accessibility is most effective when it is considered at the beginning of the design process. This avoids the costs of redesign and modifications. If your website is not accessible, you risk tarnishing your brand and inviting legal issues.
Below you find the process for designing an accessible website:
We look at the business advantages for creating an accessible website. In this first step, we investigate which level of accessibility is most appropriate for your company and map out a plan to get there.
Analysis is the phase during which the target public is defined, along with its characteristics and needs. It is here that the decision is made which handicaps to take into account.
Specifications are created and precisely define the way attributes of objects, such as images and elements,must be added to make the code accessible.
We can help you design your site in an accessible way. For example, it is possible to make a prototype and test users along with the blind and partially sighted. Perhaps your target is an aging population or you want to consider alternate input devices. We can help you create the best solution for your needs.
We have three types of evaluations:
- An expert evaluation made by a trained expert in web accessibility.
- An evaluation made by a blind evaluator trained in accessibility and/or a trained partially-sighted person. These two handicaps cause the most problems when visiting websites.
- Usability testing with participants who are partially-sighted and blind.
For a thorough evaluation, it is preferable to combine all three types of evaluation mentioned above.
