Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Compliance

Encore Support aims to adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 level standards to ensure that our website is accessible to a wide range of people with disabilities.

 

What is WCAG?

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)is an internationally recognised standard created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Its purpose is to define how to … “make Web content more accessible to people with disabilities. Accessibility involves a wide range of disabilities, including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, language, learning, and neurological disabilities….” Quote source: www.accessibility.org.au- What is the WCAG Standard?

 

Encore Support will endeavour to ensure website accessibility by taking the following measures :

 

  1. Alternative Text: We provide alternative text for all non-text content, such as images and videos, so that it can be changed into other forms people need, such as large print, Braille, speech, symbols or simpler language and ensure that screen readers can interpret the information accurately.

 

  1. Keyboard Navigation: Our website is designed to be easily navigated using a keyboard, allowing individuals who cannot use a mouse to browse our site effectively.

 

  1. Clear Structure and Headings: We use proper HTML markup and headings to organize the content of our website, making it easier for screen readers and assistive technologies to navigate and understand the information.

 

  1. Color Contrast: We have carefully chosen color combinations to ensure sufficient contrast between foreground and background elements, enhancing readability for people with visual impairments.

 

  1. Captions and Transcripts: For multimedia content, such as videos, we will provide captions and transcripts to make the information accessible to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.

 

Continuous Improvement

We recognize that there may still be areas of our website that need improvement in terms of accessibility. We are actively working to address these issues and are committed to regularly reviewing, testing, and updating our website to ensure compliance with accessibility standards.

Third-Party Accessibility

While we strive to make our website accessible, we acknowledge that some third-party content or components integrated into our site may not fully meet accessibility standards. In the process of building and maintaining our website we will encourage our partners to become accessibility compliant or provide accessible alternatives wherever possible.
