We can justifiably say that Accessibility is in our DNA as making a difference to the lives of the people our solutions touch is one of our founding principles.
We have proactively championed Accessibility since the inception of our business, as we believe technology should be a force for good and a leveller providing equal access to all online capabilities and services.
Accessibility is often seen as “people with disabilities”, but actually includes people who experience any impairment to their use of the web, including temporary and situational impairments as a result, accessibility affects everyone.
In our experience it is often a lack of awareness that most commonly results in things being inaccessible.
Having an accessible web solution means that people are empowered, can be independent, and will not be frustrated by something that is poorly designed or implemented.
Our knowledge and expertise in this field are second to none and by closely working with you we ensure that your solutions are accessible to everyone that uses them. Additionally our products have inbuilt 'accessibility checkers' to ensure ongoing compliance at the grassroots level. We follow Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 and provide testing for compliance to ensure individual, organisational and legislative needs are fully met. This important issue is dealt with by our Accessibility consultants who will work with you to ensure it is understood, how users might access and use your service with WCAG 2.2 guidelines in mind.
At VerseOne we take accessibility seriously and support Love A11y, accessibility for all.
UNDERSTAND ALL YOUR USERS | Accessibility Monitoring
Web accessibility focuses on how solutions and online tools are created, designed and maintained so that not only people with disabilities, but everybody, can use them with ease and confidence. Web-based solutions that are truly web accessible allow people to: Perceive, understand, navigate and interact with them, and contribute to progressive functionality.
Web accessibility includes all disabilities that affect access to online systems and also takes into account other factors independent of disability, such as; people using mobile phones or smart watches, older people with changing abilities, people with “situational limitations” such as bright sunlight, and people using a limited internet connection.
