Web Accessibility Audits
Using simple concepts and techniques, we can help you make your web site accessible to people with a wide range of abilities. This may mean a significant increase to your web site traffic. It will also bring your web site into conformance with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). These standards are the basis for the Ontarians with Disabilities Act (ODA), Common Look & Feel, Section 508, and many other Canadian and US standards which require web sites to be accessible to people with disabilities. Accessible design does not need to be bland or inartistic. Accessible design is sleek, scalable and easy to implement.
As "invited experts" to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Working Group (WCAG), we have an intimate knowledge of the emerging WCAG 2.0 standards and the current 1.0 standards.
We will show you how a person with a disability might approach your site
and the difficulties they might have with it. We print out the code of the
site and circle problems and give explanations of how to fix these areas. We
help webmasters leverage their current skills, making as few
adjustments to their style as necessary as they move towards compliance with
the W3C accessibility standards. We understand the reasoning and history
behind each of the WCAG guidelines and bring this depth of knowledge to our
consultations, rather than statically following to the guidelines. We
