The web is for everyone
All technology is assistive, as the saying goes. Removing barriers that reduce access to digital products for persons with disabilities is good law, good ethics and good business. At I72, accessibility is a major focal point at every step of the way, from planning all the way through to development. Following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, or WCAG, we rigorously test every facet of the project in order to ensure that anyone with a disability will still be able to use the site as intended. Our team can also provide you with a rundown of the changes needed for older sites to become WCAG AA compliant. Finally, our developers have built specific tools – Toggler and Candescent – to help your team improve your sites accessibility and implement best practices.
At Ignition72 we understand that accessibility is a crucial aspect of a successful and user-friendly website. That’s why we offer comprehensive accessibility and compliance services to ensure that your website is fully compliant with the latest standards and regulations.
Our accessibility audit services thoroughly evaluate the accessibility of your website or digital platform for individuals with disabilities including operation on different devices and browsers, the clarity of your content, and the functionality of your forms and navigation. We use industry-standard tools and techniques to identify barriers and provide recommendations for improvement.
Our website maintenance services ensure that your website is always running smoothly and efficiently and that that your online presence is never interrupted. We handle everything from regular updates and backups to bug fixes and security patches so you can focus on running your business while we handle the technical details.
By combining our website consulting and accessibility strategy services, we help businesses create a comprehensive approach to their online presence. This includes optimizing website performance, increasing user engagement, and ensuring compliance with accessibility guidelines. Our goal is to help businesses reach their full potential online and create a positive user experience for all visitors.
Candescent is an accessibility guidance plugin that displays alerts in certain Gutenberg blocks. See when the content you are adding doesn’t meet accessibility guidelines quickly. With Candescent you’ll see an alert front and center in the block’s toolbar, letting you know when something has gone wrong, then further details can be viewed in the sidebar. Candescent is open-source software. Download from the official WordPress page here. With Candescent you can get an alert in Paragraph blocks when your font size is too small. Next, discover if the foreground and/or background colors lack contrast. Lastly, get an alert in Image blocks when the image’s alt-text is missing
The on-site accessibility toggle is our custom-developed tool to aid in the viewing experience. With a single click increase your sites font size and improve the contrast ratio by switching to dark mode. I72 can install the tool as part of our accessibility services when building your site. The toggle buttons sit conveniently in the corner of your page and changes your site to dark mode and/or increase the font size for easier reading and scanning. Switching back and forth is as easy as one click.
Our Accessibility Checklist will help you ensure that your website, app, or other digital product is accessible to people with disabilities. This includes making sure that the site is easy to use for those with visual, auditory, motor, or cognitive impairments, as well as those who rely on assistive technology such as screen readers or text-to-speech software.
