Our Commitment to Web Accessibility

Clarity Web Design Studio is committed to providing a fully accessible website experience for all users of all abilities, including those who rely on assistive technologies like screen readers, screen enlargement software, and alternative keyboard input devices to navigate the web.

Ongoing Efforts to Ensure Accessibility

We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 as our guiding principle for determining accessibility. These are internationally agreed-upon standards that cover a wide range of recommendations and best practices for making content useable. As we add new pages and functionality to our website, all designs, code, and content entry practices are checked against these standards.

Website accessibility is an ongoing process. We continually test content and features for WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance and remediate any issues to ensure we meet or exceed the standards. Testing of our website is performed by our team members using industry-standard tools such as the Accessibility Checker WordPress Plugin, color contrast analyzers, keyboard-only navigation techniques, and Flesch-Kincaid readability tests.

Accessibility Features On Our Website

The following is a list of items we have included in our website to improve its accessibility:

  • Consecutive and logical header order
  • Colour contrast to meet WCAG 2.0 guidelines
  • Avoid ambiguous anchor text whenever possible
  • Keyboard navigable with skip links
  • Accessibility Checker plugin in use to monitor automated testing and results
  • Manual testing at minimum every 6 months for continued improvement opportunities

Where We’re Improving

In our efforts to bring our website up to standard, we are targeting the following areas:

  • Relevant and descriptive alt-tags, which are continually being improved for better and more evocative language, to provide a better experience for non-sighted users
  • Ensure ARIA labels are consistently and appropriately used
  • Reduce reliance on visual cues for actionable items

This is part of our broader effort to make everyone’s experience at Clarity Web Design Studio a welcoming and enjoyable one. Please note that while we make every effort to provide information accessible for all users, we cannot guarantee the accessibility of third party websites to which we may link.
