Web accessibility is a process that must be continually monitored and updated, it is a subject that changes annually at the regulatory level with new burdens for specific categories and fulfilments that must be completed within well-defined deadlines. It is therefore necessary to rely on expert consultants to keep the site up-to-date. (This does not mean having a daily or weekly exchange of information, but for us at accessiway it is essential to allow all our customers to be aware of any changes or improvements that need to be made, so as to always be compliant with all legislative and social obligations)
No, using Overlay technology and our consultancy services the site design and functionality - in the part visible to the user will remain the same.When a specific navigation profile is selected by the user with the specific disability, the Frontend will be modified to allow the site itself to be usable, but without modifying the source code and, above all, only in the local client-side session.
To make a site accessible, it is necessary:
All site content can be read accurately and clearly by screen-readers and assistive software installed on the operating system and used by blind people to access digital navigation content
Fully navigable and operable using only the keyboard, without the need for a mouse. This function is used by people with motor disabilities.
Implement a sufficient colour contrast ratio between foreground and background elements, set the correct and readable font size, have sufficient text spacing, text emphasis, and other design and user interface related adjustments.
Animations can be stopped so that people with epilepsy can navigate safely without risking a seizure.
- Understandable by people with cognitive disabilities Written in very simple, understandable words or alternatively include a glossary or dictionary to help readers with cognitive and learning disabilities understand the content correctly.
Each site has specific characteristics, so it is impossible to have a universal time frame. We, at AcessiWay, thanks to one of our services: accessWidget, can guarantee in 24/48 hours a first step towards a level of accessibility that guarantees usability (about 85%) for the categories of people in WCAG 2.1
Making a website accessible requires specific know-how and consulting work by one or more professionals.If the site is already existing, it is necessary to check every single element of the site and remediate it - then add specific information (contrast ratios, ARIA labels, alternative texts and an extensive list of other specific requirements in WCAG 2.1 AA), such that they can be understood by assistive technologiesIt is essential to update and remediate all additions made to the site, so it is advisable to have a long-term strategy. Accessibility is not a one-off project, but one to be followed over time.
