Why it's important
A poorly designed web site or application can be difficult or impossible for a disabled user to properly access or navigate. For example, a blind or partially sighted user may access the content through a screen reader which reads aloud the contents of a website. To cater for a variety of access methods, proper consideration needs to be given to how content is defined.
Ensuring that web content is accessible helps foster social inclusion, equal access and equal opportunity. Users with reduced display resolution, mobile devices, colour limitations and slower connection speeds each have their own accessibility requirements. All of our web-enabled systems comply with W3C web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG v2.0).
We employ mobile-first, progressive enhancement techniques when designing and building websites ensuring that functionality and user experience is not compromised on any device.
We’ve tried to ensure the Method4 website is as accessible as possible, aiming to meet AA standards of the WCAG 2.0. If you have any comments on this or other aspects of our site, please email us at [email protected].
