Accessibility Statement

Accessibility isn’t an afterthought.

Inclusive Design and Accessibility

At the heart of my approach is the principle that accessibility is not an optional extra, but a foundational aspect of my design process. I meticulously craft my websites and applications with a focus on best practices to guarantee compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and ensure ease of use for everyone. I design and build my websites from the ground up with accessibility in mind.

My commitment to accessibility is driven by the desire to make my website universally usable. This includes ensuring that:

  • The website is fully functional on older computer systems and with slower internet connections.
  • Users can zoom in up to 300% without losing content or experiencing text overflow.
  • The majority of the website can be navigated using just a keyboard, accommodating users who are unable to use a mouse.
  • Speech recognition software is compatible with most parts of the website, aiding users with mobility challenges.
  • Screen readers, including updated versions of JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver, can effectively interpret and read out most of the website content.
  • All text is presented in fonts with high contrast ratios and appropriate sizes to enhance readability for users with visual impairments.

Adherence to WCAG 2.1

My dedication to accessibility is ongoing, aiming to meet and exceed the standards set by the WCAG 2.1, level AA criteria. These guidelines are pivotal in making web content accessible not only to individuals with sensory, cognitive, and mobility disabilities but also to all users, regardless of their abilities.

Open Dialogue for Continuous Improvement

I pride myself on creating a website that is accessible to all. However, I recognize the importance of continuous improvement and value your feedback. If you have suggestions or need assistance, please contact me. Your input is crucial in helping me serve you and others better.
