What is WCAG & ADA?
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are part of a series of web accessibility guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the main international standards organization for the Internet. They are a set of recommendations for making Web content more accessible, primarily for people with disabilities—but also for all user agents, including highly limited devices, such as mobile phone.
WCAG 2.0 consist of twelve guidelines organized under four principles (websites must be perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust). Each guideline has testable success criteria (61 in all). The W3C’s Techniques for WCAG 2.0 is a list of techniques that help authors meet the guidelines and success criteria. The techniques are periodically updated whereas the principles, guidelines and success criteria are stable and do not change
In Canada, the Canadian federal government require all online web pages, documents and videos available externally and internally to meet the accessibility requirements of WCAG 2.0.
Our solution is an automated Web Accessibility Solution powered by AI. It is a game-changer in web accessibility, simplifying and streamlining the process of becoming accessible and compliant using AI, machine learning, and computer vision.
In the US: Accessibility standards issued under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) apply to places of public accommodation, commercial facilities, and state and local government facilities in new construction, alterations, and additions. The ADA Standards are based on minimum guidelines set by the Access Board. According to ADA title III, every business website has to be accessible to people with disabilities, or it will be at risk of being sued and facing unnecessary legal expenses.
How does our solution work?
Our solution is an access widget that utilizes two applications that work together to remediate your website. The accessibility interface is responsible for the UI and design-related adjustments, while the AI-powered process handles the complex requirements – optimization for screen readers and keyboard navigation.
The accessibility widget’s interface is a session-based design and UI adjustment tool that makes accessibility modifications based on a user’s individual needs. With the interface, users can customize your website to their individual accessibility needs, including:
- Content Adjustments
- Colour & Display Adjustments
- Navigation Adjustments
Web Accessibility for Blind Users
Blind users use screen readers to verbally dictate what is on the screen. Most websites lack alternative text for images and ARIA attributes for content and behaviour-related adjustments that screen readers rely on. The widget uses machine learning to scan, analyze, and interpret every element on the page the same way sighted users do. Then, it uses ARIA attributes and various behaviour adjustments to provide full context to screen readers. This allows blind users to navigate and browse through sites accurately.
Drop-down menus, forms, popups, icons, and buttons are all included in the process. Additionally, it uses computer vision to provide accurate descriptions of images.
Supporting you all the way
Our Web Accessibility solution also provides you with a Litigation Support Package at no extra cost, in the case that your website’s compliance is challenged. Along with our personal attention, the package includes professional audits, reports, accessibility mapping, compliance supporting documentation, guidance, and more.
