The growing population of people with some form of disability should be enough to make digital accessibility a top priority. And yet a large percentage of websites and digital projects overlook accessibility requirements. Now imagine a user with a degenerative visual impairment trying to access information online Lack of appropriate accessibility features impedes the user’s interaction, resulting in a dismal experience.
Given the pervasiveness of the internet and its use, influence, and applicability in our day-to-day lives, the web should be universally accessible, irrespective of the users’ level of disability. That is why the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has created extensive and exhaustive Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 and 2.1) to help organizations create accessible digital content for people with varying degrees of disability.
Web accessibility is the new normal and companies need to ensure their content is available to all, not just to stay legally compliant but also to create a more inclusive user experience. At Amnet, we understand that providing unrestrained access to digital content to every user is a key business objective. However, given the exponentially evolved accessibility standards, integrating accessibility into the web and application designs can be complex and seriously challenging.
Amnet’s wide range of accessibility services can be customized based on accessibility goals and requirements. Amnet remains deeply committed to ensuring accessibility across digital platforms and media to maximize inclusivity and wider reach. Whether you need remediation for your existing site or app or want to build born-accessible content, we have you covered. Our accessibility service portfolio includes:
Certain accessibility requirements may be beyond publisher workflows. We provide services that include generating accessible metadata, semantic structuring, tagging tables, generating MathML, writing alt text descriptions, and making interactive content accessible.
Adding alt text descriptions to non-text content is an important guideline within WCAG 2.0 and we help you do that so the content can be changed into other formats, such as Braille, speech, and symbols.
Following the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) guidelines for MathML, we encode math content and eliminate the ambiguity of a verbal description of a picture to make mathematical equations accessible to everyone.
This goes way beyond meeting the requirements of auditory challenged users. Every day 425 million people watch Facebook videos with the sound muted. We help you create closed captions that are an extension of subtitles and usually contain descriptions of important nondialogue audio, such as sound effects. Closed captioning can aid comprehension of accents, quickly spoken dialogue, or other linguistic barriers.
Amnet offers transcription of audio, proofreading of the transcribed text against the spoken audio, and syncing of audio and transcribed text. We have a proprietary platform that is compatible with audio synchronization features.
We provide transcripts of content along with captions that play in sync with the podcast for people with hearing disabilities, audio descriptions of visual information for visually challenged audiences, and translation services for video subtitles in a variety of languages.
We create accessibility metadata that contains information such as access mode, accessibility features, accessibility hazards, accessibility controls, and accessibility application program interface. It is a powerful tool that allows users to better understand digital publication, its content, and its applicability.
This includes an end-to-end accessibility check—read-aloud using Acrobat Reader, NVDA, JAWS, Section 508 and WCAG compliance, screen reader compatibility with NVDA, JAWS, VoiceOver, on-target platforms and devices, IDPF accessibility guidelines and WCAG compliance and PAC accessibility checker.
Amnet audits your website, identifies gaps, and provides a comprehensive report and plan for making the site accessible to all.
