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 HOW) decide the WHAT to embed all successfully.

Organizational Accessibility Awareness

Being aware of the needs of people with disabilities and the elderly and how they use digital products is a good start to becoming more inclusive.

But what does that mean for your organization? What benefits and insights do you need to gain? Who and how should employees be involved? And what changes do you need to implement to transform successfully?

What are the organizational challenges?

The fundamental themes of accessibility awareness remain unchanged:

  1. Grasp Understanding and Barriers you encounter
  2. Operational Gains and Applied Comprehension
  3. Embedding Changes for Processes and Employees

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.”
