How We Ensure Accessibility in Every Website We Build

wawe-accessibillity evaluation-tools – How We Ensure Accessibility in Every Website We Build

Accessibility is a core value at We are committed to building websites that are usable by all people, regardless of ability or situation. This means designing with consideration for those with disabilities such as low vision, blindness, deafness, mobility impairments, cognitive limitations, and more. An accessible website allows the widest possible audience to perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the content.

Our process focuses on compliance with international Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to meet Level AA standards. This includes following principles such as perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. We perform rigorous accessibility testing using a variety of tools and manual checks at each stage of design and development. Color contrast, text size, page structure, and multimedia alternatives are all carefully evaluated.

From the initial strategy and information architecture phase, accessibility is a driver of key decisions. We specify how content will be digestible for assistive technologies like screen readers. Color is never used as the sole means of conveying information. Images have text alternatives and video captions. Forms are built to be navigable without a mouse.

During frontend development, we leverage semantic HTML5 to ensure content is delivered meaningfully to all users, regardless of the particular combination of hardware and software in use. Web fonts are used judiciously with fallback fonts specified. CSS is meticulously crafted and tested to avoid barriers.

Prior to launch, we conduct comprehensive manual and automated accessibility testing. Key tools in our process include WAVE, aXe, and manual keyboard-only testing. Any issues uncovered are promptly addressed through code fixes or redesigns to achieve our goal of AA compliance.

Post-launch, we remain available for ongoing support, maintenance, and remediation as needs evolve or are reported. Accessibility is a continuous journey that requires dedication and vigilance. At, we are committed to building digital experiences that include people of all abilities from the start. An inclusive web benefits us all.
