Accessibility issues affect us all
The diversity of people with various needs using your digital product should not be ignored when making decisions regarding the design and development of your website.
At least 18% of network users struggle with accessibility. Users with disabilities visit websites as any other web user, but more than often they are not able to gain access to all of your content.
Solving accessibility issues not only helps you expand your online audience, but also will help increase your product value for algorithms. It will increase your conversion rate and take the UX experience of your product to the next level.
How to meet WCAG standards?
We use Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) to assess possible problems and point to the right solutions.
POUR is an acronym for four principles describing functional accessibility. Accessible product is Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust.
One of the most common issues in user interfaces is low contrast, which makes content difficult to read and perceive. It affects not only users with disabilities, but it can lead every user to frustration when it comes to using the digital product in the bright sun.
When WCAG standards are met, users can read our content without disruption.
In this solution, contrast is too low. Paragraph text doesn’t pass any standards: it’s hard to read even for the user with perfect sight.
Do you want to know what to change in your product to meet WCAG guidelines? Use the power of our experienced experts providing you a detailed accesibility audit . Working with the guidelines we assess your solution, assign correct rules and point to the solutions.
