Accessible Websites

An accessible, or ADA-compliant*, website can be used by those with visual, hearing, motor, and cognitive impairments. Website accessibility best practices apply to how the site is built, its appearance, and its content. Implementing accessibility best practices can also help with SEO and can improve the user experience for everyone using your website.

Elevage Digital builds websites that meet current Website Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Benefits of an Accessible Website

  • Comply with laws and regulations*
  • Reduce the potential of being sued*
  • Increase the audience for your website
  • Improve website usability for everyone
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
  • SEO

How We Build Accessible Websites

  • Start with an “accessibility-ready” WordPress theme
  • Add a curated set of plugins
  • Apply a color palate that meets color contrast standards
  • Avoid features that have unexpected and uncontrollable movements
  • Keyboard and screenreader testing as part of the development process
  • Provide templates and tools to help you maintain best practices going forward
