AbilityNet Accessibility Services
Are you reaching every customer on every platform?
AbilityNet has a team of Consultants and Accessibility Testers who help businesses, charities and public bodies to design and maintain their websites, apps and other electronic media. By focusing on usability and accessibility we make sure you are reaching every customer on every platform.
Our clients include BT, Camelot, LOCOG, Football Association, HSE and Microsoft as well as a range of business, charity and not for profit organisations.
The Case for Accessibility
There is a huge, often untapped market of people who are excluded from many key websites because the provider simply does not realise the opportunities they are missing. Sound business sense means being accessible to all potential customers whatever the access technology they use.
The Law says that you must not exclude people from your services on the basis of their disability, and that includes services and information on the web. But accessibility is much more than just a legal obligation.
How We Can Help
Our consultants take a look at your site and give a traffic light analysis of key issues, from a green light to show that things are okay to a red light for anything that needs immediate attention. It's a good place to start if you want to think about budget and timescales when planning a project.
An Accessibility Audit digs deeper and tells you in more detail how well you are complying with the law, identifies specific issues that need to be addressed and is a great stepping stone to becoming compliant. Our consultants spend more time reviewing the issues that are being reported and recommend fixes.
User Experience Services
For more detailed insights our User Experience Services can help you to get things right before they are released. Using people with a range of disabilities in our state-of-the-art testing suite in central London, offers a 'coalface' view which can include testing using mobile devices.
Our team of consultants can address specific needs at any stage in a project, from explaining the business case to managers to detailed technical feedback to web developers or an in-house team.
