At first, developers think getting web accessibility right will be easy. It's not. By the time they realize this and panic, you have already wasted time and a lot of money. We can help you avoid the mistakes others have made and put you on the easy road to accessibility.
There is a better way: Deque helps your developers solve accessibility problems without requiring them to become accessibility experts!
What are your accessibility compliance challenges?
- Are you overwhelmed by the cost and effort required to fix web accessibility?
- Is your accessibility remediation project currently stalled?
- Are your developers frustrated by never-ending accessibility defects?
- Are they just now realizing how complicated it is?
For many companies web accessibility compliance is overwhelming, frustrating, and expensive because:
- There are multiple browsers on Windows and Mac desktops to consider
- There are multiple assistive technologies including multiple screen-readers - JAWS™, NVDA, VoiceOver
- Users, particularly those who are blind, are increasingly accessing your sites from mobile iOS and Android devices
- The standards are extensive and it takes time to determine what applies to you
