Snakeware stands for accessibility for everyone!

For years, our company Snakeware has stood for user-friendly websites and online productions based on complex data sources. Integrating these data sources, software solutions, and the growth of various device types has made truly accessible websites quite challenging. However, accessibility is not just about form and technology; it also concerns content. If you genuinely desire an inclusive and accessible website, then the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) and applying these guidelines are crucial for accessibility, as well as the performance and discoverability of your website.


Why accessibility?

The internet is for all of us, which is why it's essential that everyone can use it. This means that people with disabilities, such as color blindness, visual impairments, low literacy, and/or motor disabilities, should have their wishes and needs met as well. To fulfill these wishes and needs correctly, important guidelines have been established to ensure accessibility, making it accessible and comprehensible for everyone. These guidelines are developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and are regularly updated to continually improve accessibility for everyone.


What is WCAG?

WCAG is divided into three levels (Level A, AA, and AAA), four principles (perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust), and 78 success criteria. These principles and criteria are necessary for creating accessibility. To meet accessibility requirements, a website must achieve at least Level A and AA compliance.


How can we help?

At Snakeware, we can provide assistance in creating and maintaining accessibility. We do this by critically reviewing the website and/or online production based on the guidelines. This allows us to assess accessibility and provide advice on how to improve or maintain it. Through this thorough evaluation, we create an advisory report that outlines all the insights and recommendations to enhance accessibility. We can help turn "pains" into "gains," ultimately improving accessibility.


What does it bring?

Besides significantly improving accessibility, this advisory report offers another significant advantage: by enhancing accessibility, discoverability also increases. Search engines are designed to prioritize accessible content. This advantage can lead to more visitors and increased conversions. In short, it's a win-win situation.


Tip: When we measure WCAG compliance annually, you can be sure your website and/or online production remains up-to-date and accessible. Who wouldn't want that? This way, you ensure that you're always accessible.
