For too long, websites have been built without the needs of people with disabilities as a priority, even though the world wide web is often a primary source of information and community for such individuals.
Web Networks supports the movement to build websites that are accessible. Through our work with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), supporting indigenous groups in the North as well as internationally, and producing the literacy application Yodigo, we have become leaders in Canada in making the Internet a friendly place for people with disabilities. We are experts in reviewing accessibility levels of websites, providing concrete recommendations which include detailed steps required to meet current standards. We can also build your fully compliant accessible website from scratch.
If you are a municipal manager or Clerk in Ontario, responsible for communication at a public sector organization or Province of Ontario agency, or manage the website of a Government of Ontario ministry, you are probably already aware that you will very shortly be required by law to ensure new and archived website content meets the new accessibility standards of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005.
Please contact us for a free initial consultation on making your website accessible or for assistance in devising a strategy to convert existing web properties to the accessibility standard as defined in the new Ontario Disabilities Act.
