Accessibility

Accessibility can often be overwhelming because you already have so many other tasks on your mind that are involved in site management.

Our Team is dedicated to meeting the highest level of Accessibility Standards and ensuring every website is accessible to all users. We are always looking for ways to continuously improve the usability of sites because we believe equal access to content is essential for the web.

"The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect."
-Tim Berners-Lee (W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web)

What We Do

Meet Your Goals

Web accessibility needs to be a priority in all aspects of the new site design, development and content strategy. We understand that your main goals are to develop a site that is fully accessible, mobile friendly and that incorporates improvements to the user experience. Beacon’s development team will build all templates and CSS to the design blueprint in accordance with web standards, accessibility standards and best practices.

Provide in Depth Accessibility Audit

At Beacon, we complete a thorough Accessibility Audit and provide a categorical breakdown of any issues, along with recommendations and best practices to maintain compliance guidelines with the future website. During our audit we will make sure your site:

  • Meets WCAG 2.1 Guidelines
  • Provides good color contrast
  • Uses true text whenever possible
  • Uses adequate font size
  • Has recognizable links
  • Provides ways to help users navigate
  • Uses Plain Language
  • Has an organized structure and headings
  • Contains accessible PDFs
  • Provides logical Forms
  • Allows keyboard navigation

Accessibility Website Health Management

Beacon also offers quarterly ADA site scans using either SortSite or SiteImprove and analyzes scan findings to provide specifications for revisions to meet compliance requirements. Initial focus is on Priority 1 issues (WCAG Level A) to help resolve template level, content-level, PDF and form issues, then we shift focus to resolving Priority 2 template and issues (WCAG Level AA). Progress is tracked and reported on from quarter to quarter.
