It's a common misconception that reaching a high level of accessibility is usually at the cost of an engaging user experience. That is, that most websites adhering to AA or AAA standards are dull, text based websites.
This needn’t be the case. Accessible website design is about offering multiple access points with differing levels of complexity.
We have designed and produced a range of complex digital projects which have had to adhere strictly to W3C AA and AAA standards.
These include multiple projects for the pan-disability charity Scope and the UK's leading magazine for disabled people, Disability Now.
On each occasion, we have worked closely with The Shaw Trust in Wales, who were responsible for accrediting our work, ensuring it has the highest standards of accessibility.
We’ve travelled to The Shaw trust’s HQ in Wales to see first hand how the rigorous testing processes their team of disabled testers use to ensure that the sites to which they award accreditation are compliant with existing guidelines.

Ensuring we deliver inclusive websites for all is something that we are committed to achieving.
Not only is it a legal requirement for your organisation’s website and intranet to comply with the UK Equality Act, but failing to have an accessible websites means you are excluding a part of your audience.
Users with visual or physical impairments use assistive technologies to help them read or listen to content on the web. For example, a visually impaired user is likely to use a screen reader which will read the content out loud.
Adhering to the W3C guidelines for accessibility ensures that these users can experience your content to the fullest.
