Are you at risk?
Accessibility is whether a website works for people with disabilities who typically access sites using special techniques and tools. It's sometimes referred to as a WCAG 2.0 Audit.
Organisations who do not meet their obligations in regard to the Disability Discrimination Act are at risk of damaging legal action and possibly even more damaging PR. With the Internet now the preferred delivery channel for many government and business services it is essential that people with disabilities not be forgotten. Approximately 1-in-4 Australians identify as having some form of disability, which makes it both an important social responsibility and a significant opportunity to engage with more customers.
Beyond WCAG 2.0 - our additional checkpoints
In recent years we’ve seen a growth in the number of websites that are not accessible. This is because advancements in technology and ever-increasing complexity have led to gaps in the effectiveness of the WCAG 2.0 guidelines. Whilst certification against WCAG 2.0 is certainly a logical starting point it doesn’t automatically guarantee that a website is compliant and actually usable.
To address this shortcoming, based on years of testing and input from people with disabilities, we have developed 10 additional checkpoints for accessibility over and above WCAG 2.0. The story doesn't end with recommendations for achieving compliance. At AccessHQ, we go even further; we are uniquely positioned to assure your website or application in terms of Accessibility and Usability.
