Enabling Digital Inclusivity Through Expert Accessibility Remediation

In today’s digital age, inclusivity is paramount. Government agencies must ensure that their digital platforms are accessible to all individuals, regardless of their abilities. At MEPS, we are committed to making technology more inclusive through comprehensive accessibility remediation services.

The Importance of Accessibility

  • Equal Access: Ensuring accessibility means that everyone, including individuals with disabilities, can access and interact with digital content, services, and applications on an equal basis.
  • Legal and Ethical Obligations: Government agencies have legal and ethical obligations to provide accessible digital experiences in compliance with standards such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Our Approach to Accessibility Remediation

  • Comprehensive Audits: Our experts conduct thorough audits of your digital platforms to identify accessibility barriers and issues. We assess websites, applications, documents, and multimedia content to create a comprehensive remediation plan.
  • WCAG Compliance: We follow the guidelines outlined in WCAG to ensure that your digital assets meet the necessary accessibility criteria. Our remediation process aligns with WCAG’s levels A, AA, and AAA to accommodate various user needs.

Addressing Diverse Needs

  • Visual Impairments: We implement solutions such as alt text for images, clear headings, and descriptive link text to assist users who rely on screen readers and other assistive technologies.
  • Motor Disabilities: Our experts ensure that interactive elements are keyboard-navigable and that focus states are clearly visible, enabling users who navigate using keyboards or other adaptive devices.
  • Cognitive Disabilities: We optimize content readability by using clear language, avoiding jargon, and simplifying complex structures, making digital content more accessible to users with cognitive impairments.
  • Hearing Impairments: Our multimedia remediation includes closed captioning for videos and transcripts for audio content, enhancing the experience for users with hearing impairments.

Customized Remediation

  • Tailored Solutions: Recognizing that each agency’s digital assets are unique, we provide tailored remediation strategies that address specific accessibility challenges.
  • Ongoing Support: We offer continuous support to maintain accessibility as your digital content evolves, ensuring a consistent and inclusive user experience.

Benefits of Accessibility Remediation

  • Wider Reach: Accessible digital content reaches a broader audience, including individuals with disabilities, the elderly, and those with situational limitations.
  • Legal Compliance: Our services help your agency meet legal requirements and avoid potential lawsuits related to inaccessible digital content.
