Accessibile Websites

Is your website compliant?

At 519web We Are Passionate About Making Websites Accessible for Everyone

This is a NEW TECHNOLOGY that we believe is well ahead of it’s time.  Is it just us? Or does it make plain good sense to make accessible websites the new norm for everyone!  Imagine a visitor to a website being able to easily adjust the size of the font, or change the colours of the headings or text for easier reading?  Or having access to an on-site dictonary to provide the definition of a word.   The ‘accessible tools’ available affordably now, to every website owner, is a game changer.   We have always tried to make our bricks and mortar stores and shops as pleasant to visit as possible, why should the norm be any different for visitors to our website? You are going to love this!

Websites for Everyone

As of January 2021, all companies with over 50 employees are required to have an AODA compliant website. AODA stands for Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, which was created to remove barriers for individuals with disabilities and provide accessibility to everyone in Ontario, including website access. 

519web is here to ensure that you are ready.  It’s our goal to help all small businesses with accessible websites, so everyone has easy and friendly access to local services.  

We offer a free audit of your website’s accessibility and an easy, inexpensive solution to ensure your website is not only compliant but available for everyone to use.  

 

Artificial Intelligence at it's Best

Consider the benefits of a visitor being able to increase the font size, remove any flash, change the background colours depending on light. These easy transitions are possible with our new 519Web accessibility tool. 

This new accessible website software is very extensive and includes solutions for all types of disabilities.

Visually Impaired and Blind Persons

The software allows any surfer to fully customize the way the content is presented, and influence all aspects – from the colour of the script to the spacing and other possibilities. The system will automatically scan the site  and create a match for various screen reading programs while creating an automatic alternative description of the pictures on the site (using artificial intelligence that can decode images). The user will receive a fully optimized site  that can be easily used with screen reading software.

Motor Disabled

A person with a motor disability can navigate the site fully and conveniently using only the keyboard itself, while performing all mouse related activities such as clicking, opening various menus, hovering, marking and more. In addition, it’s possible to jump between elements of the site using various keyboard shortcuts that simulate the operation of JAWS (the leading screen reader in the market at this time).

Cognitive Disabilities and Seniors

This new software enables the assimilation of interpretations into words, phrases, slang or acronyms, without any change to the text appearing on the site and without reference to an external source. Only those who wish to use the interpretation will see the output from this feature.

Epilepsy

Now persons with epilepsy will have complete control over all types of online media – images, graphics, banners, videos, clips, etc. – to prevent any media from playing automatically and using effects that can be a trigger. The surfer can quickly and efficiently stop any type of media that might be dangerous.

Avoid Fines and Lawsuits

With our software, we can ensure that your site exceeds  AODA standards and that you avoid any violations. Not only that, you can rest assured, knowing that your site is compliant and you won’t be susceptible to law suits or fines. Your site can avoid legal action with this affordable solution.

Starting January 1, 2014, all new websites and web content, or significantly redesigned websites, published by large businesses and non-profit organizations are required to abide by Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A. And, as of January 1, 2021, all internet website and web content will be required to be fully accessible under WCAG 2.1 Level AA. Failing to meet these requirements can have severe financial repercussions.
