The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is known for setting the standard for on premise accessibility, such as ramps, braille signage, and door width, but many clients are shocked to realize their websites in many industries must also comply with accessibility standards.
Online information can be made accessible to the blind, hard of hearing, and illiterate through thoughtful design and conscious coding. What sets fjorge apart is our ability to consult during the design phase about how ADA affects the overall design and functionality of a website. This also sets the stage for a seamless design-to-development handoff and smoother development timeline.
Web Accessibility can include:
- Color contrast for the colorblind
- Content hierarchy compatible with screen readers for the hearing impaired and illiterate
- Image Alt Text that accurately describes the context of images on a page
- Captions on video and other media content
- Functionality with keyboard operation
- Text animations with enough time for comprehensive reading
The fjorge team has seen these standards change over time, and we are equipped with the cumulative experience to meet ADA and Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) requirements at any level, for any website. We can consult on and build custom websites with ADA/WCAG compliance in mind, or bring existing websites up to code.
