Web Accessibility

Web pages are made with technologies like HTML and JavaScript, which provide structure and interactivity to websites.

When used properly, these technologies provide information that enable blind web-users with software called a “screen reader” to access and interact with the web-page.  Detailed guidelines exists as well as training for how to properly implement web accessibility.

However, in a large percentage of web pages, perhaps because of ignorance or lack of a budget, pages are designed without the necessary structure that allows the page to be used fully with a screen reader.

The mainstream approach to fixing those errors is to educate, encourage and legislate for better web design.   The situation has improved in the past few years, but F123 Access takes a more radical approach: While waiting for the web-design to reach the required level, our software can go out there and make temporary repairs which will allow blind users to get on with using web-sites.
