Web site accessibility guidelines are designed to make web content available to everybody.
Recent figures state that, in the UK alone, there are 8.6 million people who are registered as disabled (Source Disabled Rights Commission). The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 came into full effect in October 2004 and has since been replaced by the Equality Act 2010, which came into effect on 1st October 2010 and for Scotland April 2011. This act obligates service providers to take all reasonable steps to ensure that people with disabilities are not excluded or discriminated against, when accessing information and services.
By following the web site accessibility guidelines, we can make sure your web site is available to visitors who:
• are partially sighted or blind
• have cognitive difficulties
• have physical disabilities
• use mobile phones, PDAs, etc.
• do not have the latest computer desktop technology
• use slower Internet connections
By following the guidelines there are several forms of web site accessibility accreditations, you can add to your web site, including The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) priority levels and Bobby, which are free services, and the RNIB's Web Accessibility Accreditation, which is a paid-for advisory service.
We embrace the latest accessibility guidelines, usability recommendations and worldwide standards from industry bodies such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and deliver solutions using latest and best technologies such as XHTML, CSS, XML, Adobe Flash, Microsoft.NET, and PHP.
