Do you think that your web site is accessible for everyone? Not yet! Here are some facts according to U.S. statistics:
20% of people between the ages 15 and 64 years have some kind of disability
29% of families have at least one family member with a disability
Consumers with disabilities control more than $175 billion dollars in income
Governments and businesses throughout the world start to pay growing attention to the Web accessibility issues. There are many reasons to make your Web based applications or software systems compliant with Section 508 (29 U.S.C. ' 794d) and WAI Guidelines (www.w3.org/WAI/), main accessibility norms, as this provides you many benefits like:
Making your web site accessible to people with disabilities
Increasing audience and attracting new users and customers
Reducing your risk of lawsuits
Giving your company a positive public image
Preparing for new technologies
Allowing you to perform transactions with the government
Providing you with overall additional testing of your applications and systems
Furthermore, starting with June 2001 in the United States electronic and information technology that is developed, procured, maintained or used by the Federal Government must be accessible to people with disabilities (the U.S. Law).
Our company offers several accessibility solutions and services, including:
Accessibility Audit and Work Estimation
We methodically audit your Web based application or software product to determine the level of compliance with accessibility requirements and provide a complete list of deviations. Then we determine the scope of the work for getting a compliant system and make recommendations for a best way to modify your software. Besides, a general re-testing of your Web based application or software product is performed and a problem report is provided.
Accessibility Redesign and Retrofit
We can redesign and retrofit your Web based application or software product to fit with 508/WAI Guidelines based on the plan and schedule provided by us. We have finished successfully a number of compliance projects and our team of knowledgeable programmers, designers and testers is ready to work for you.
Direct Source™ Software
Direct Source™ is proprietary unique software developed by us to help bringing your system into compliance. It differs from other software tools available in a way that it finds accessibility violations directly in the source code of your application, not in the resulting HTML code.
Developer Consulting and Technology Transfer
This will save you time, effort and money in future, as your staff will be able to develop new software systems 508/WAI compliant and you'll be able to keep all the work in-house. We guarantee to deliver a quality service in time and for affordable price.
