Digital and Website
-Jason Fayre, National Lead, Accessibility and Assistive Technology, CNIB Foundation
Educational institutions are communicating through their digital properties more than ever before. But as technology continues to evolve at a breakneck pace, it has become increasingly difficult to ensure that all digital assets can be accessed by every student.
By conducting accessibility audits, we’re able to provide a customized digital remediation strategy that will ensure your web presence has the widest possible reach. More than six million Canadians identify as having a disability. Just imagine what a difference it could make to your students if your digital materials could be accessed by every last one of them.
At CNIB Frontier Accessibility, we employ a phased approach to assisting you with your digital accessibility goals.
- Initial Audit Phase: This is the start of your journey towards a truly accessible digital presence. Let our experienced staff assist you in identifying what is working well, and what needs fixing. Our initial audit will give you a comprehensive report on your website and apps, letting you know where you stand from both a usability and compliance perspective. We'll even give you best practice tips that your developers can use to remediate successfully.
- Remediation Phase: We want to make sure your remediation is right the first time. Our experts have the knowledge and experience to work alongside the best developers to help them be efficient and stay on track. Whether it's in-flight accessibility testing, best practice ideas on how to solve common accessibility issues, or access to the broadest base of lived experience testing, we can give your digital remediation the boost it needs to be a success.
- Compliance Audit Phase: Whether it's WCAG compliance or a successful VPAT, let us assist you in your graduation to an inclusive online presence. With our access to the largest lived experience testing group in the country, alongside the CNIB Foundation's 100-year heritage brand, both you and your customers can trust our accessibility stamp of approval.
