Inclusive Design

Being inclusive for your website visitors matters

Website graphic icon
Inclusivity and Accessibility matter – a lot!  Yes, it is a legal requirement but more than that, Inclusive Design is the right way to treat visitors to your website.  The Americans with Disabilities Act (‘ADA’) became law 40 years ago.  If your organization talks about being socially responsible and your website is not Accessible, what are you waiting for?

Some visitors to your website may be persons with a disability or may be using alternate access devices to navigate, read, and comprehend your content.  There are three essential questions you should be asking about Accessibility.
  1. Does my website comply with 508 and WCAG standards?  There are some great tools to help you look at your public facing or internal websites and identify Accessibility issues.
  2. After I identify Accessibility problems, how do I fix them?  Your Accessibility issues could be embedded within templates or master pages, or they may be unique to content or images on individual pages.  
  3. My website is Accessibility compliant . . . how do I keep it that way?  No small task if you have multiple web editors or developers who may be creating pages, templates, and other content and design elements.
At High Monkey, we look at Accessibility holistically with services for Auditing, Compliance, and Maintenance.  No surprise, our three services match up to the three essential questions you should be asking about Accessibility.

If you’ve read this far, please remember that our goal is to make YOU a hero!
