Intranet Portal ACCESSIBILITY

Ensure your content is accessible to people with disabilities.

An accessible website is inclusive to all users regardless of their functional limitations. We provide sustainable, robust, easy to use and accessible intranet and enterprise portal design solutions that provide a positive user experience despite any physical, sensory, or cognitive disabilities, work constraints or technological barriers on the part of the user.

ACHIEVE COMPLIANCE

We understand the internationally recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0), ADA 508 and Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), so you don’t have to be uncertain about your ability to achieve compliance.

ENGAGE ALL USERS

Make your users with accessibility issues happy by giving them universal access to your intranet or enterprise portal in ways that work for them. We ensure that our design solutions are perceivable, operable, understandable and robust to ensure accessibility for all.

Where to start

We begin by defining the web accessibility standard that your organisation would like to or are mandated to comply with. This standard will enable everyone to understand the contributing factors and what technological considerations that will come into play.

TIMING
The typical duration for accessibility consulting is 2-4 weeks, and happens in tandem with research and interaction and visual design phases.

how we do it

During the information architecture, interaction and visual design phases we work to integrate design elements that address specific compliance factors.

We utilize a range of techniques, including advisory techniques for content, and apply best practices in order to successfully address accessibility concerns for the widest range of users.

Research conducted with actual users also provides valuable input that guides our design phases.

what you get

We ensure that the final design solutions that we develop are implementable, screen readable and offer tools that meet the needs of individuals, organisations, and governments regardless of their limitations.

We focus on users to better understand their unique needs, implement solutions that meet those needs and ultimately to make their life easier.
