Sagentic Web Design fully recognizes and understands the importance of ensuring that digital services are accessible to all users, including those with disabilities. As such, we are committed to delivering a website for local governments that are not only user-friendly, but also compliant with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and Colorado's House Bill 21-1110.
Section 508 & HB21-1110 requires that all individuals with disabilities, whether they are federal employees or members of the public, must have comparable access to electronic and information technology provided by the Federal Government. Our team is fully trained and experienced in creating websites that meet Section 508 & HB21-1110 standards.
We achieve this compliance by adhering to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) which cover a wide range of recommendations for making web content more accessible to people with disabilities. These guidelines not only ensure legal compliance but also provide an enhanced user experience for all users, irrespective of their physical abilities.
We use a variety of techniques and practices to ensure the accessibility of your website, such as providing alternative text for images, making sure the site can be navigated with a keyboard alone, ensuring sufficient color contrast for users with low vision or color-blindness, and providing transcripts for audio content.
Sagentic Web Design is committed to maintaining these standards throughout the website's lifecycle, conducting regular reviews and audits to ensure ongoing compliance as the website grows and evolves.
