Experienced Experts

Access to our service desk and our highly experienced experts, ready to help with any issues related to digital accessibility.

Digital Accessibility

Digital accessibility ensures that all of the users on your platform can easily utilise all of its functionalities and access its content. When your website is accessible, it can welcome and accommodate a wide range of users that can explore your services and find the information they need. This is highly recommended for public sector organisations’ websites that can be visited by every member of society and thus their features should be available to everyone.

The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile) Accessibility Regulations 2018 state that by 23rd September 2020, websites for all public sector bodies must be inclusive and accessible for all. This is a legislative requirement that aims to grant easy access to resources to every member of society to ensure inclusiveness.

Website Accessibility
Digital Wellbeing

Digital accessibility is often associated with people with disabilities and the awareness of their digital wellbeing needs. However, there are a number of other reasons for you to optimise your website to meet these standards, including:

Website Accessibility

When it comes to public sector organisations, website accessibility plays an ever-increasing role in enabling your users to fulfil the purpose of their visit autonomously. This benefits people with disabilities by allowing them to interact with your content via various assistive technologies. Examples of assistive technologies include screen readers, magnifiers, tactile keyboards and other pieces of software or hardware that allow users with impaired vision, hearing or motor skills to actively consume the information.

Website Accessibility Assistance
Planning Accessibility Website

The efficiency of assistive software depends on a series of factors and functionalities that your website may not have. Even the most advanced technology will not benefit the end user if your platform does not provide for easy navigation and intuitive design. So, accessibility principles are very similar to good practices in design that developers need to observe. By making your platform easier to navigate, you improve the overall user experience for all of your visitors, which ultimately raises their satisfaction with your service.

How to Make Your Website Accessible

Website Developers

Our team of developers and designers are committed to implementing the necessary changes that will make your website fully accessible without compromising any features. We aim to improve the functionalities and help deliver them to more users so that all important content will be available to your citizens.

We offer a comprehensive service that starts with migrating your website to a new platform that is compatible with Level AA Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and gives you a set of features and plugins that you can pick from. Once the migration is complete, we will take full care of maintenance to make sure that your applications are running correctly.

Content Accessibility
Incident Management

Should there be any problems, we will act promptly through our incident management function and service desk. Our team will detect and keep track of any incidents in order to classify and analyse them. Cantium’s support also features resolution and recovery solutions that aim to find the technical reason behind the issue and offer an efficient way to resolve it.

Digital Accessibility Training and Help

We know that major digital transitions are challenging, especially when they concern your personnel and require a good understanding of technological principles that your team needs to adopt. We can help you by organising training for public sector bodies that introduce your staff to the national regulations and explain their implications for your organisation.
