We often get asked what WCAG means.
At JFDI, we pride ourselves on creating inclusive and accessible digital experiences for all users. We understand the importance of web accessibility and are committed to adhering to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standards. Our products are designed and developed with accessibility in mind, ensuring that everyone can access and interact with them effectively.
WCAG 2.1 AA compliance is an internationally recognised set of guidelines that provide comprehensive accessibility requirements for web content, including websites, applications, and digital services. By conforming to these guidelines, we aim to remove barriers and provide equal opportunities for individuals with disabilities, allowing them to navigate, perceive, and interact with our products meaningfully.
Our commitment to WCAG 2.1 AA compliance is reflected in several key areas:
- Perceivable: We ensure that our products provide content that can be perceived in multiple ways, catering to various sensory capabilities. This includes offering alternative text for images, providing video captions, and employing colour schemes that offer sufficient contrast for readability
- Operable: Our products are designed to be easy to use, even for individuals who may have difficulties with fine motor control or rely on keyboard navigation. We provide keyboard accessibility and clear, consistent navigation structures, avoiding design elements that may cause seizures or physical discomfort
- Understandable: We strive to create clear and intuitive products, making it easy for users to understand and navigate the content. This involves using plain language, logically organising information, and providing clear instructions for interactive elements
- Robust: Our products are built using modern web technologies and coding practices that ensure compatibility with various assistive technologies, such as screen readers, magnifiers, and alternative input devices. This helps us maintain consistent accessibility across different platforms and devices
To ensure the ongoing compliance of our products, we employ a combination of automated accessibility testing tools, manual testing, and user feedback. We regularly review and update our design and development processes to incorporate the latest accessibility best practices and guidelines.
By prioritising at least WCAG 2.1 AA compliance, we meet legal and regulatory requirements and foster an inclusive digital environment that welcomes users of all abilities. We believe that accessibility is a fundamental aspect of user experience, and we are dedicated to providing equal access and opportunities to all individuals who interact with our products.
Please note that while we strive for compliance, no website or application can guarantee absolute accessibility for every user. However, we are committed to continuous improvement and actively encourage user feedback to help us enhance the accessibility of our products.
If you have any specific accessibility concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team. We value your input and are always looking for ways to improve the accessibility of our products.
