Accessibility

Ensuring everyone is able to reach the content of your site is not just ethical, its good business. A universally accessible site allows for a larger audience and more flexibility on the presentation of your information. 

Accessible design is good design

One in four adults in the United States have some form of disability. To reach the largest possible audience, your site needs to be accessible to all users. At Duo, we take a comprehensive approach to accessibility. Our process bakes accessibility into every step of a project. This means that our designers are thinking about low-vision users when selecting colors, our UX team is considering the keyboard experience and our developers structure the content to be easily scannable by assistive devices.

Improving Accessibility with Oberlin College

Oberlin College initially came to Duo for an independent, third party website accessibility audit. Duo performed an accessibility audit and report of Oberlin.com and reviewed the findings with the Oberlin team.

  • 1 in 5 people will experience some type of disability in their lifetime, including temporary or degenerative conditions like injuries, aging eyes or hearing loss. For users with disabilities, life goes on. Technology access should too.

At the risk of stating the obvious, making your website accessible to all users is always a good practice. Setting aside the morality of inclusive design, organizations who neglect accessibility concerns may be at risk.
