Today, technology is impacting and transforming our lives in a big way. It is affecting the way we communicate, interact and access information. However, there are over 1 billion people around the world who are differently abled, having color blindness, hearing problems and motor disabilities among others and are deprived of access to information.
Accessibility Testing Services are a combination of manual and automated testing techniques that are used to validate and ensure that applications in context do meet industry standards and appeal to the target audience that includes differently abled.
Product companies and businesses around the world, like never before, are increasingly realizing the importance of providing proper web accessibility to the specially abled.
Many countries are coming up with regulations, which aims to provide mandatory and inclusive web accessibility, and better user experience for the differently abled. Moreover, there are chances of litigation and lawsuits stemming from inaccessible content. In most of the countries, regulations are forcing organizations to think about accessible design and meet global accessibility standards like WCAG 2.0, WCAG 2.1, Section 508, ADA, etc. The advantage for an organization, if it is made Accessibility compliant, is that it increases company’s brand image and they are perceived as a socially responsible organization.
Innominds is committed to do its part by providing Accessibility Testing and Compliance services that will help your organization become WCAG 2.0 and WCAG 2.1 compliant, which, in turn, will increase your user outreach. We work with our clients to audit, rectify and certify to make sure that the platform is fully accessible to everyone ensuring better user engagement.
