AODA Website Design

To develop a website that meets WCAG 2.0 Level AA standards and compliance with AODA, it is best to start with a plan. The design phase is our first planning stage to develop an AODA compliant website. When designing a website to be accessible, we first must have an understanding of and understanding of the AODA website design checklist.

A site that is designed with accessibility in mind, makes for a much easier development process. There are various commonly used website functions, such as; animation, forms, sliders, photos and video. Which must be designed in such a way that is accessible.

AODA Website Development

To comply with AODA accessibility standards, a website must be developed to be used with ease for users with any metal of physical disability. Our developers are certified for accessibility web development, through International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP). With this certification and experience our developers understand how to build websites that work using assistive technology and that all forms and functionality are properly built. With an accessible website it will work on the following assistive devices:

  • JAWS for Windows
  • Microsoft Narrator
  • NVDA screen reader
  • macOS Voiceover

AODA Website Testing

To ensure a website is accessible and meets the WCGA 2.1 AA standards. A multitude of testing needs to be done. Not only does a site need to operate and function in the desired outcome, but the website must also work properly when read by an assistive device, or navigate properly when magnified or tabbed through with a keyboard. When testing a website for accessibility we use a automated scan tools and we test manually with assistive devices, which include:

  • JAWS for Windows
  • Microsoft Narrator
  • NVDA screen reader
  • macOS Voiceover

AODA Website Audit

In some cases a 3rd party audit may be required by your organization to ensure your website is compliant with WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standards. In other cases you may choose to have an audit done to your website before development, to get a checklist of what tasks would be needed to make your current website AODA compliant. In either case we can recommend various 3rd party organizations who specialize in AODA website audits.
