Accessibility website greenwich

Our accessibility web services are here to assist you in making your website accessible so that legal requirements are met.

A recent Disability Rights Commission (DRC) report highlights the fact that over 80% of UK websites fail to meet the basic requirements of disabled people and that these website operators face severe compensation payments for non-compliance with existing legislation.

The Disability Discrimination Act clearly states that organisations must offer Internet information in an accessible form if it is "reasonable" to do so.

In the UK , by making an Internet service inaccessible you potentially lose 10 million disabled customers.

Some methods of presenting information result in Internet web-sites which are unreadable by some visually impaired computer users. Designers often misuse the internet programming language HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) to create visual effects.
