Web accessibility services

We provide Web accessibility testing, training and certification services to help you ensure that your Web site is more accessible to search engines and complies with industry best practices.

Are you aware that a massive potential customer base wants to, but are probably unable to buy your goods and services? Did you know that you could be breaking the law?

We can help you reach more potential customers while meeting your corporate and social responsibility to provide equal access. We can also help you to mitigate the risk of litigation.

What is Web Accessibility?

Web accessibility addresses the issues that face people with any form of disability who wish to use the Web. Specifically, Web accessibility means that people with a disability can use, understand, navigate, communicate with, interact with and contribute to the Web.

Web accessibility is not only a corporate and social responsibility but it is now also a legal requirement in many countries such as the USA with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 508 and the UK, under the 1995 Disabilities Discrimination Act (DDA) Part 3.

How is Web Accessibility Measured?

The W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), are used by government authorities, industry bodies, and organisations around the world as a means of measuring accessibility conformance.

Some disability agencies and government departments have developed their own guidelines but these too are based on the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Guidelines. Segala was involved in helping to create the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and is therefore in a better position than most, to help you understand the technical and commercial benefits to your organisation.
