Create Awareness

Being truly aware of what accessibility and inclusiveness mean, what the landscape looks like, and how it can benefit your organization in multiple ways is a precondition for improvement.

We have the capability to provide the guidance needed to make organizations aware by informing them about the importance, explaining the different needs of different people, showing the benefits, and focusing on people, tools, and processes.

The creation of awareness is an ongoing process where everyone in an organization has its role and responsibility, no one excepted.

This provides a clear WHY for accessibility and inclusivity, and together with a Gap-Analysis, the WHAT to embed all successfully.

We help organizations

Gap-Analysis

Comprehending the current status of your organization’s culture and processes through an evaluation of the relative performance in delivering inclusive and accessible products and services.

Maturity Progress

It is insufficient to make individual products in an organizational silo accessible. It is of critical importance that an organization establish repeatable internal processes and methods.

Accessibility Audits

Audits for accessibility provide insights if the already build product conforms to the global standard WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).

We help to focus on accessibility barriers

“While there are many diversity groups in the world today, people with disabilities is the only one with a dependency on information technology…and in particular, accessible information technology.

Without it, people with disabilities are confronted with barriers to the digital world, depriving them of access to employment, goods, services, entertainment, information, and other aspects of modern daily life that others take for granted.

Unfortunately, the progress towards eliminating these barriers is still too slow.”
