Thoughts, ideas and solutions on UX, web accessibility and design
Here at Nomensa we have accessibility at the heart, so when we get granted time in our schedule to work on contributing modules to the Drupal community, our first choice was to look into contributing modules that could raise the standard of accessibility across Drupal.
Web accessibility can increase customer satisfaction, generate revenue, improves brand loyalty and can even enhance search engine performance. It’s also a legal requirement under the Equality Act 2010. But how many travel companies recognise this potential?
Fifteen years after the Web Accessibility Initiative was launched, which aimed to improve web usability for those with disabilities, online accessibility is still widely ignored. Far too often there is a belief that a compromise must be made between accessibility and an attractive design.
In less than 2 years responsive web design (RWD) has become a digital design trend.
If you think the number of devices that needs to be considered is mind-boggling in 2013 this is likely to be insignificant to the potential ways we will use information (and screens) in the future. This makes the whole RWD approach very practical and those who have embraced it are building a platform that will allow future devices.
