Empowering Inclusive Digital Experiences
We strive to make the digital world a more inclusive and accessible space for everyone. With a growing emphasis on accessibility, organizations must ensure that their websites and digital content meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requirements. My mission is to help you identify and overcome accessibility obstacles, providing clear guidance on improving usability for all.
Expert Accessibility Auditing
As a skilled auditor with extensive experience in assessing websites and digital content against WCAG and AODA requirements, I can identify areas of non-compliance and provide practical, actionable recommendations to ensure your digital assets become and remain accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities or limitations.
A Real-World Approach to Accessibility
I understand that accessibility is more than just checking boxes on a compliance list. My real-world approach focuses on identifying obstacles that users with disabilities might face when interacting with your digital content. By putting myself in their shoes, I can pinpoint issues that may not be immediately apparent, but can significantly impact the user experience.
Some of the key areas I assess in my audits include:
- Visual Design: Ensuring text size, color contrast, and visual hierarchy promote legibility and ease of use for all users, including those with visual impairments.
- Navigation & Keyboard Accessibility: Confirming that your website is fully navigable using only a keyboard, making it accessible to users who rely on keyboard navigation or assistive technologies.
- Content Structure: Evaluating the logical organization of content, proper use of headings, and the inclusion of informative labels to aid users with cognitive impairments or screen reader users.
- Alternative Text & Media: Verifying that all images, video, and audio content include appropriate alternative text or captions to make them accessible to users with auditory or visual impairments.
- Assistive Technology Compatibility: Testing your website with popular screen readers, magnifiers, and other assistive technologies to ensure compatibility and smooth interaction for all users.

I don’t just identify problems; I provide actionable solutions. My comprehensive audit reports offer clear, step-by-step guidance on how to improve your website’s accessibility, prioritizing changes based on their impact on the user experience.
