Accessibility Compliance

Accessibility compliance means making web content more accessible to everyone, not only for those with disabilities.

The Australian Government has mandated that all Australian state and territory government websites must conform to the guidelines for accessibility by set dates. It is also good practice for all organisations to consider some aspects of accessibility compliance for the best user experience for all.

WHAT DOES ACCESSIBILITY COMPLIANCE MEAN?
Accessibility compliance is governed by a set of guidelines called WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) and there are three levels of these, depending on what level of compliance is sought. These guidelines and techniques range from content creation through to the design and build of a website and can include:

  • Providing text alternatives for all non-text content including images, video and presentations
  • Making is easier for users to hear and see content including considerations for colour ratios and separating content from background
  • Making content compatible with assistive technologies such as screen readers
  • Making accessible PDF content

BUILDING FOR COMPLIANCE
If compliance is sought for any website, it is best to do this from the start as it is considered at different stages of a project.

Strategy and Planning - Considerations to site architecture and information structureDesign - Colour and layout considerations including contrast ratios, sizes of headings, print styling and text sizing.Web Development - Building the site with accessibility in mind including fields for content alternativesTesting - At the end of a project, the site is fully tested for compliance with a range of tools



ACCESSIBILITY COMPLIANCE FOR EXISTING WEBSITES
If accessibility compliance is sought for an existing website, we are able to an accessibility audit to gauge what is needed to attain a level of compliance and advise on best practice in term of visual design, content and technical requirements.
