ENHANCING WEB ACCESSIBILITY FOR EVERYONE
ACCESSIBILITY WIDGET: AN ADVANCED AI-POWERED WEB ACCESSIBILITY SOLUTION.
Revolutionizing web accessibility, this widget transforms the journey to compliance with WCAG & ADA standards. Utilizing artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and computer vision, Accessibility Widget simplifies and streamlines the accessibility process.
WHAT IS WCAG?
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 delineate the principles for creating web content that caters to the diverse needs of individuals with disabilities. Encompassing a spectrum of disabilities such as visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, language, learning, and neurological conditions, the guidelines aim to foster a universally accessible digital environment.
It is important to note that while the guidelines address a broad range of accessibility challenges, they may not comprehensively cater to the unique needs arising from different types, degrees, and combinations of disabilities.
Additionally, these guidelines contribute to the enhancement of web content usability for older individuals undergoing changes in abilities due to aging. Consequently, they not only serve to empower individuals with disabilities but also promote a more user-friendly online experience for the broader user base.
ADA COMPLIANCE FOR WEBSITE
In a recent development, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has released a crucial opinion on ADA Compliance as it pertains to websites. While discussions around ADA Compliance for websites have occurred previously, this marks the first official declaration from the DOJ regarding the compliance of business websites. The official article from the DOJ can be accessed here.
Given the authoritative stance adopted by the United States government concerning the adherence of business websites to specific accessibility criteria, it is anticipated that there may be a surge in lawsuits filed for non-compliance. This underscores the importance for businesses to proactively address and align with ADA standards to mitigate legal risks.
OPTIMIZATION FOR BLIND USERS
Users with visual impairments depend on screen-readers to audibly convey on-screen content. Unfortunately, a significant number of websites fall short in providing essential elements such as alternative text for images and Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) attributes crucial for facilitating adjustments related to content and behavior that screen-readers rely upon.
Our Accessibility Solution takes on the responsibility of managing intricate accessibility enhancements, including optimizations for screen-reader functionality and seamless keyboard navigation.
Among the widely recognized screen-readers are JAWS (for Windows), NVDA (for Windows), VoiceOver (for Mac & iOS), Talkback (for Android), and ChromeVox (for Chromebook).
