Mobile Accessibility – Mobile Accessibility has some of the same aspects of Web Accessibility but it also includes usage on mobile phones, tablets, and other devices. The list of devices vary from phones, tablets, digital TVs, smart watches, house hold smart appliances, and more. These are just some of the issues that the devices encounter: touch screens, small screen sizes, reflective lighting and more.
PDF Accessibility – PDF Accessibility is making a PDF accessible to both blind and visually impaired individuals so that they can read and understand what is going on with in your document. Making a PDF accessible is very similar to making a web page accessible, and doing so is by utilizing tags, headings, and xml markup. The XML markup is not seen visually to sighted users, but devices will be able to read the markup and give the non-sighted user a better explanation of what is in the document.
Multimedia Accessibility – Multimedia Accessibility is making it where hearing impaired and visually impaired know what is going on with your media. The way to do this is by creating a transcript, audio description, closed captioning, and if possible sign language. The audio/video should be published with the accessibility already implemented.
Accessibility Training – Accessibility Training is a more in depth process where one of our team members fly’s out to you, and will go over Accessibility guidelines for you or your team.
