Why is Website Accessibility important?
The website accessibility WCAG 2.1 AA level sets out the standards for website design, user interface, behaviour and functionality. In simplest terms, the standards introduce a global approach to website accessibility for all users.
Ensuring everyone has access to your website is your responsibility. While most of our reliance on using online services is driven by convenience, people with disabilities rely on these services out of necessity. Making sure these resources are optimised for all users is the equivalent of a wheelchair ramp at the shops.
Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, Australian Government agencies, public sector and private sector are required to ensure information and services are provided in a non-discriminatory accessible manner.
Delivering secure and accessible online experiences to leads to improving customer service, building trust and reducing legal risk.
How is accessibility achieved to the WCAG 2.1 AA level?
The accessibility interface uses AI and automation to deliver WCAG 2.1 AA level compliance.
The accessibility interface allows every visitor to personally adjust your website’s look and feel based on their individual needs. Your website design and structure remain unchanged (provided a best practice approach was used to begin with).
Consider the interface like a pair of glasses; the object (your website) being looked at remains the same while the glasses (accessibility interface) makes the necessary changes based on user needs.
AI and automation tackle compatibility for Screen Reader and keyboard navigation. Provided your website layout makes sense, all the adjustments required to reflect exactly what is on the screen along are made automatically.
Together, they work to achieve WCAG2.1 AA level compliance proactively. Your website is then scanned ensuring all content updates are compliant.
How is WCAG1.2 AA level compliance maintained?
Your accessibility tool automatically scans your website every 24 hours at a minimum. Any updates to content, products and resources are proactively managed using automation. This avoids costly re-auditing and website development tasks. Your website remains compliant without increasing your team’s workload.
