What it’s all about
What does accessibility actually mean? The term ‘accessibility’ is generally used to refer to enabling those with visual impairments, hearing impairments or in need of mobility aids to use digital media without encountering any problems. But accessibility can mean much more. There is a whole range of reasons why your digital solution may not be accessible for some users. For instance, temporary health problems, such as a broken arm, might restrict someone’s access to your solution. But has it ever occurred to you that someone with a slow internet connection might experience similar problems? Or those with older devices? We are convinced that digital solutions must be accessible for all, regardless of who is using them and how they are using them.
What you get
You will get a product that is accessible for all. We know that this is a big promise, but we at Liip have long been committed in creating accessible web and mobile applications for our clients and their end users. Our approach to integrated accessibility means that the product meets accessibility standards right from the initial planning stages and the first draft. We will accompany you every step of the way, from planning the solution and creating the prototype all the way to finalising its design and the implementation process. Thanks to our long-standing collaboration with the ‘Access for All’ foundation, we can guide you through the certification process efficiently, and keep the associated costs down. You’ll see that it’s worth it - for your end users, yourself and your peace of mind!
Good to know
The Swiss Disability Discrimination Act is less strict than its counterparts in the United States and Sweden, and this drives us even more to create digital solutions that are accessible to all. We are also one of the initiators of and contributors to the Accessibility Developer Guide initiative, which is based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) of the W3C. You can be sure that we will help you to create products that respect the web content accessibility guidelines and are certified by the ‘Access for All’ foundation.
