Web Accessibility and Usability
WSI is committed to web accessibility and website usability.
"The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect." - Tim Berners-Lee (W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web)
WSI assists its business customers to ensure their websites are user friendly and accessible for people with disabilities by providing education, guidance, tools and techniques that comply with the worldwide W3C standards.
Recognizing the Internet's importance in today's society, many governments are in the process of introducing legislation designed to ensure equal access to the Web regardless of any physical disability a person may have. In some parts of the world, such as the United Kingdom and Australia, these laws already exist and businesses are required to comply. In many other countries, government websites are required to meet Web Accessibility standards while businesses are encouraged to comply voluntarily.
Website Usability – Your website should be usable by all visitors.
A website’s usability is just as important as its accessibility. WSI Internet Franchise Consultants help their clients create a website that enhances their visitors’ experience. They do this by assisting clients to maximize their site’s usability with great design, intuitive layout, the addition of user friendly tools, easy navigation and much more.
Like the telephone before it, the Internet has quickly matured into an essential public service that millions of people throughout the world rely on everyday. It is the greatest hub of information ever assembled and affects how we study, shop for products and services, learn about world events and communicate with those around us.
