Accessibility is essential for some, but useful for all. Be it an application for web, or for mobile, or documents such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, an average product turns into an exceptional solution when the attention is given to subtle yet key areas of usability and accessibility. From small to big, all organizations emphasize that content should be made accessible to people with disabilities
Our accessibility team includes experience developers, testers, technical writers, and interaction designers, who understand software, software users, and the ways people use software.
Vidyatech’s accessibility team has developed its proprietary Accessibility Checker to check Microsoft Office documents against the custom checklist derived from the global standards and previous learnings/experiences.
We provide accessibility to our customers to ensure products function across browsers and devices and comply with industry standards such as Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG), and Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA).
The use of assistive technologies, including popular screen readers such as JAWS, Narrator, and NVDA, ensures accessible products are developed per the international standards. We also perform realistic testing with help of visually impaired (VI) testers. TalkBack and VoiceOver are used to test accessibility on mobile applications.
To ensure the final product scores well on the accessibility front, our team follows the ACTIVE model. Our curated model ensures the end-product is available through sight, hearing, or touch, and compatible with keyboard and mouse, easy to operate and comprehend by both VI and non-VI users and works well across platforms.
