Providing a unified experience for all users
Accessibility shouldn’t be an afterthought
By building a digital platform that is inclusive for all users, without any adaptations, this creates a unified experience for all of your users.
Better Accesibility, Better UX
By paying attention to accessibility best practices for navigation, colour schemes, fonts and ease of use, this provides better UX across the board.
Harnessing Assistive Technology
We can take advantage of powerful built in technology such as Apple’s VoiceOver which provides screen readers for visually impaired users.
Care and Comply
By taking the time to consider how all of your users experience your platform, you can also ensure compliance with current accessibility legislation.
Why Accessibility Matters
Over 15% of the world’s population experience some form of disability. When these users access a website or app that is not accessible, there is a 70% chance they will leave unsatisfied. Not only this, but many other users who do not have a disability find accessible features such as screen readers, captions and magnifiers extremely helpful and improve their experience of your platform. Whether someone has a visual impairment that means they need screen reader to read your website, or a cognitive impairment that means they need clear, simple content, by providing your content in a way that is accessible to all, you go a long way to showing your users you care.
How Do We Make Platforms Accessible?
There are many ways to improve the accessibility of a platform, and this process starts from the initial design, all the way through to how the platform is developed and coded. A few of the main considerations are the navigation, fonts, contrast and providing different options to users so they can access content in a way that they can read it easily. We also ensure that our web platforms and mobile apps are configured correctly so that they are accessible using screen readers that parse a website content into audio, such as Apple’s VoiceOver feature.
