‘Inclusive Design is design that considers the full range of human diversity with respect to ability, language, culture, gender, age and other forms of human difference.’
When most businesses consider digital accessibility it is often thought of as something that needs to be done ‘at some stage’, or they simply just aren’t aware of their obligations. In Australia, there are current laws and policies that outline the obligations of businesses to provide accessible online content.
As a longstanding provider to the NSW Department of Education, we have ongoing experience with WCAG 2.0 AA compliance, along with an understanding of and a commitment to universal design towards an authentically inclusive society.
Accessible digital content is usually discussed in relation to disabilities, though accessible digital design refers to the ‘philosophy and practice of designing web content so that it can be navigated and read by everyone, regardless of location, experience, or the type of computer technology used’ (World Wide Web Access: Disability Discrimination Act Advisory Notes)
An eMAGINed accessibility audit and report are a good place to start on the universal inclusion journey.
We can test and report on your current digital content or concept designs.
We create accessible digital content that complies with WCAG 2.0 level AA.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 covers a wide range of recommendations for making Web content more accessible. Following these guidelines will make content accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity, and combinations of these. These guidelines address accessibility of web content on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Following these guidelines will also often make your Web content more usable to users in general.
