People. Technology. Results.

Today, we live in what can rightly be called The Digital Age. Society is driven by digital technologies, affecting all aspects of our lives in education, health, work and leisure, across myriad platforms and devices, for young and old alike. With digital accessibility issues affecting 20% of the population, it is essential then, given the ubiquity of digital technology that online access becomes the de facto reality for all. Yet that reality is still some way off. The Digital Accessibility Group was founded to work exclusively with other businesses in a remediation capacity. We support clients through ‘design and build’ projects, as well as retrospectively upgrading and maintaining webapps, social media and other digital platforms to comply with globally established Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). In doing so we help to ensure that our clients’ meet international standards, avoiding legal and reputational damage, while furthering commercial objectives and profitability through helping unlock customers who present diverse digital access issues.


What is Digital Accessibility?

Digital accessibility enables individuals with disabilities to access and use digital content, tools, and platforms. It is not just a legal requirement, but also a moral and ethical obligation to ensure that people with physical and mental needs have equal access to information and services online. This allows for a full and equal participation in today’s digital society, including employment, education, healthcare, and entertainment. Digital accessibility ensures that digital content is perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust, providing alternative ways for users to access information, such as captions, transcripts, and screen readers. Ultimately, digital accessibility creates a more inclusive and equitable society for all, regardless of health, age or economic status.


Who Does It Affect?

1 in 5 people in the UK have digital access-related needs, across the spectrum of disabilities, including visual, auditory, physical, cognitive, and neurological. It also includes temporary disabilities, such as those caused by injury or illness, and situational disabilities, for example people affected by issues relating to environmental factors. In today’s digital age, accessibility is crucial to ensure everyone has equal opportunities to participate in society, access information, and communicate effectively on websites, mobile applications, software, and via other digital technologies. By making digital content accessible, organisations can reach wider audiences, increase engagement, create a more inclusive online environment, and help to drive their own profitability.
