Savas designers and developers continuously strive to meet or exceed WCAG and ADA accessibility standards.
Our designers carefully select elements such as fonts, layouts, and colors to provide our partners with options to accommodate a wide range of user abilities. Since user experience is always a top priority, much consideration goes into ensuring a client’s site follows logical and practical layouts, allowing users of varying abilities to use the site effectively.
Savas developers use semantic code and industry best practices during the coding phase to create our products. In addition, our senior developers rigorously review our code at every step throughout the development process. As a result, our high coding standards are not only “best practice” but directly correlated with high levels of accessibility and performance.
Before handing a new site or feature off to a client, we perform accessibility testing using a combination of various types of software and manual testing methods. Some of the many areas in which we test include, but are not limited to the following:
Images: All images contain “alt text” to provide users with screen-readers a description of the image. Also, images are optimized to accommodate users with slower connection speeds or on mobile devices.
Navigation: Navigation items follow a logical tabbing order to accommodate users with limited sight or manual dexterity who “tab” through content rather than clicking with a mouse.
Screen-reader-only content: Information that is visually hidden is added when applicable to provide additional context, enhancing the experience of users who utilize screen-readers to access the site.
A website that prioritizes accessibility can serve a diverse range of individuals, enhancing the user experience for people of all abilities.
