We’re in the process of adding an accessibility tool to all Healthsites. The tool increases compliance with WCAG 2.1, ATAG 2.0, ADA, & Section 508 requirements.
Below is information regarding the tool that will be added to your Healthsite.
What does the tool look like?
The tool sits at the bottom right of the website and is shaped as a person. It is an intuitive and easy-to-understand plugin that is unobtrusive to any users who don’t actually require it.
In addition, we can change the image of the person to a wheelchair or an eye.
How does it help those with mobility issues?
Millions of people cannot use a mouse or other pointing device and rely solely on their keyboard to navigate websites. Your site should be fully navigable using a keyboard's tab key, arrow keys, the enter key and the spacebar.
How does it help elderly users?
The plugin helps elderly users overcome any senses that may have softened or deteriorated over time by allowing them to adjust the text size on your site, by highlighting clickable areas so they don't get lost among the other content, by increasing the size of the mouse pointer, and by using higher contrast colors.
Does the tool update with changing ADA standards?
The tool, developed by UserWay.org, is continuously updated with the latest accessibility features and strives to fulfill the strictest criteria from WCAG, ADA and Section 508. These updates are automatically applied to your site without requiring you to do anything.
