Create a user-focused

experience, accessible

to a wide audience.

Websites & applications must be built properly for the technology to work for people with disabilities who use assistive technologies.

Ontario has laws to improve accessibility for people with disabilities (Ontario Accessibility Laws). Whether you need to build a new website or modify an existing site, e-dimensionz can implement an accessible solution for WCAG 2.0 and AODA compliance.

Following simple practices for web accessibility will help your business or organization widen it's reach, improve search engine optimization, improve usability, and improves your public image by demonstrating commitment to social responsibility. 

Added bonus, search engines give preferential treatment to accessible websites with a boost in their rankings.

What is the need for an accessible website/app?

It's crucial to ensure that there are no barriers that prevent interaction with, or access to, a website or an app by people with disabilities. 

When to implement accessibility?

Implementation of accessibility can take place at several stages, but it is easiest and most feasible to achieve when the accessibility practices are incorporated from the beginning of a project itself.

How reliable is automated testing?

Although automated testing is a good way to kickstart accessibility implementation, it should be well noted that only a limited variety of issues can be covered using automated tools. Additionally, these tools often report false positives as well. Manual accessibility testing is required for a much more thorough assessment and also to ensure complete coverage of various accessibility success criteria.

How do I become fully compliant?

It is crucial to incorporate accessibility practices at the earliest possible stage of a project. Also, it is equally important to incorporate these practices accurately which, otherwise, might lead to a tedious and time-consuming process. Partnering with a trusted team of specialists can help you develop strategies and implement them in an effortless and structured manner.

WCAG 2.0 Guidelines

WCAG 2.0 is an internationally accepted standard for web accessibility developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), an international team of experts.

Levels of web accessibility

Each guideline has three levels of accessibility: A, AA and AAA. Newly created or refreshed websites must meet level A. Later, your website will need to meet Level AA. Meeting Level AAA is not required at this time.

In most cases you must meet the Level A criteria before you can meet the Level AA criteria.
