AODA / WCAG Web Accessibility Compliant Website Design & Development
Web accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of removing barriers that prevent interaction with, or access to websites, by people with disabilities. When sites are correctly designed, developed and edited, all users have equal access to information and functionality.
Websites are an increasingly important resource in education, employment, government, commerce, health care, recreation, and more. It is becoming essential that websites be accessible in order to provide equal access and equal opportunity to people with disabilities.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, often abbreviated to WCAG, are a series of guidelines for improving web accessibility. Produced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the WCAG are the best means of making your website useful to all of your users.
Mouth Media has been creating accessible WCAG and AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) for the past few years including for clients like Mirvish Productions (www.mirvish.com, www.mirvish.com/matilda), Rotman School of Business at University of Toronto (www.rotmanccresources.com, www.rotmanspcareerservices.com), CCC Group (www.ccc-group.com), amongst others.
