Web and mobile accessibility
Web accessibility is the right that every person has to understand online content while navigating and contributing to the web. Our accessibility services allow our clients to provide an optimal experience for their visitors–whether they have a physical disability (visual, hearing, etc.), or have technical impairments (slow internet, old OS, etc.).
As AcessiWeb certified experts, we will guide you throughout the development of your website to make sure you conform with web accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.0, SGQRI 008, etc.). If you have an in-house development team, we can support them in implementing best practices for accessibility.
This expertise allows us to develop solutions, that are both responsive and accessible. An accessible website or a mobile application are, off the bat, fast and provide superior user experience. Most government and public sites already respect accessibility standards.
Accessibility and SEO
Accessibility is imperative because it allows you to reach as many people as possible who may be interested in your service or product, and to reach out to their community. Accessibility is extremely important and can lead to decreased visibility when not taken into consideration. Indeed, an increasing number of people are living with disabilities (the aging population, color blindness), which can render it difficult to access information online.
Additionally, making your website accessible can improve your SEO, and–in turn–your visibility. Websites that respect stringent accessibility standards and best practices see improved results on search engines.
