Digital Product Designer at Ember Technology, Alan Graham, discusses the benefits of using accessiBe, a leading web accessibility platform, and how it enables us to provide comprehensive solutions for simplified compliance and enhanced user experience.
At Ember Technology, we are committed to building websites, mobile apps, and applications to the highest accessibility standards. We believe that everyone, regardless of their abilities, should have equal access to digital content. That's why we work with accessiBe, a leading web accessibility platform, to provide our clients with a comprehensive accessibility solution.
With accessiBe, we can simplify the accessibility compliance process for our clients. The platform handles all the accessibility audits and produces an accessibility statement, which is required by law for many businesses. This statement outlines the steps we've taken to make our clients' websites accessible and the measures we'll take to ensure ongoing compliance. With accessiBe, we can provide our clients with a comprehensive accessibility solution that includes everything from initial audits to ongoing compliance monitoring.
Another benefit of using accessiBe is that it provides us with a scalable solution for accessibility compliance. As we grow and take on more clients, we can easily scale our accessibility efforts by using accessiBe. The platform is designed to work with any website, regardless of its size or complexity, making it an ideal solution for companies that need to scale their accessibility efforts quickly.
In addition to simplifying the compliance process and providing a scalable solution, accessiBe also helps us reduce the time and cost associated with accessibility. Traditionally, making a website accessible can be a time-consuming and expensive process. With accessiBe, we can reduce the time and cost associated with accessibility by automating many of the tasks involved in the process. This includes things like creating alternative text for images, adding captions to videos, and improving keyboard navigation, all of which are essential for making a website accessible.
Using accessiBe also helps us stay up-to-date with the latest accessibility standards and guidelines. The platform is constantly updated with the latest WCAG 2.1 AA guidelines, ensuring that our clients' websites remain compliant with the latest accessibility standards. This is particularly important as accessibility standards and guidelines are constantly evolving, and we must keep up with these changes to remain compliant.
Finally, using accessiBe helps us provide a better user experience for everyone. While accessiBe is designed to help people with disabilities access websites, the platform's features can benefit all users. For example, the ability to customize font sizes and colors can help people with visual impairments, but it can also benefit people who prefer larger fonts or have color preferences. Additionally, the improved keyboard navigation provided by accessiBe can benefit anyone who prefers to navigate websites using the keyboard rather than a mouse.
In conclusion, our work with accessiBe provides many benefits for both our company and our clients. With accessiBe, we can simplify the compliance process, provide a scalable solution for accessibility, reduce the time and cost associated with accessibility, stay up-to-date with the latest accessibility standards and guidelines, and provide a better user experience for everyone. These benefits demonstrate our commitment to making the web accessible to everyone, and we are proud to be leaders in accessibility compliance.
