Accessibility

Blick has significant experience with website accessibility design. We apply accessibility guidelines to create award-winning websites that ensure websites are not only inclusive and engaging for all audiences, but that they also assist people living with a disability to access information online.

We are proud to have applied our accessibility design skills to websites for organisations including:

  • Brotherhood of St Laurence (Skills for Work website)
  • Busy at Work
  • Disability Living
  • Sanitation Marketing
  • The Victorian Government
  • The World Health Organisation (WHO) Geneva
  • UNICEF
  • WaterAid Australia

We have worked extensively with clients in the aged care, disability and youth sectors, as well as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia.

Engaging, accessible and inclusive websites for all audiences

At Blick, we treat web accessibility as an integrated part of the user experience. Working to AA Level Website Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as well as testing software and our own internal checklists, our skilled web developers and designers create websites that are functional, inclusive and engaging for all audiences, including those who have difficulties accessing, comprehending and interacting with web content. We have built websites accessible with physical, auditory, visual, cognitive, neurological and speech impairments or disabilities, among others.

We find innovative ways to ensure dynamic design while also delivering accessible digital experiences so that more people can engage with and enjoy their online experience with your organisation. In doing this, we might look at areas such as:

  • Accessible PDFs
  • Colour contrast
  • Features that assist blind/low vision or Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing users to access the content
  • Font size and style
  • Information hierarchy
  • Plain English copy

Rigorous accessibility testing

Our comprehensive design and development processes include rigorous testing to ensure that all accessibility requirements are met – everything from contrast for those who are colour blind, to keyboard navigation for those who can’t use a mouse due to fine-motor skill impairment.
