As UX designers, we’re always keen to make the experience better for the end-user. In doing so, we stay well versed in best practices. This includes accessibility in design and user experience.
This means we get asked a lot to help guide and offer opinions on sites brought to us. We’re always happy to do this! So, we produce a number of reports that help indicate current issues and highlight actionable solutions. Here’s a taste of what we deliver as a Usability & Accessibility Audit.
Accessibility audit and report
We use a combination of tools and manual observations to report the accessibility of your site. Ultimately we provide you with a list of actionable items that can help improve the overall accessibility standard. These could include such things as…
- Colour contrast correction
- Missing alternative text
- Audio and video control
- Keyboard and navigation functionality
- Layout and content flow
- Cursor and pointer gestures
- labelling and instructions
- Forms and states
There’s plenty to think about and getting accessibility right will contribute so much to a user’s experience.
If you want to learn more about Why is accessibility so important? and What happens if we’re not accessible? then we have a great article that addresses those types of questions. To find out more click here.
Aside from accessibility, we will cover a usability report that cross-examines more goal-driven and customer-related user journies. We will address more functional, design and content lead observations.
We understand that every business has a typical customer or audience in mind. And it is those customers who have a set motive or desire when they arrive at your website or application.
Our usability report aims to identify areas of friction for those customers and possible solutions to make the user experience better.
When we start our report we look further than just your website or app. We like to add visual examples of how features or issues can be improved and sometimes those examples exist on other sites. We like to highlight the areas of concern and offer ideas or ways to improve the user’s experience.
Solve challenges with user experience & interface design
We're always happy to talk about business challenges that could be solved with design and technology. We don't have a sales team, you talk directly to the experts.
