The Webtricity website templates are built and refined to be fully accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities who might be restricted to a keyboard or depend on assistive technology to navigate and utilize a website.
We design and code our templates to comply with the latest version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
WCAG includes many guidelines and recommendations for how to structure a website to be accessible, including concerns like ensuring:
- there is enough contrast between background color and foreground color (for low-vision users) and between link color and text color (for colorblind users),
- the website can be fully navigated using only a keyboard (for users with limited mobility),
- forms (input fields, validation messages, submit buttons) can be interacted with using assistive technology,
- and much more.
Our templates also include a page about accessibility that is intended to be helpful to your website visitors with disabilities and includes all of the options for communicating with your business (phone, email, text message, etc.). We encourage you to add content to this page to list the physical accessibility accommodations at your office(s), such as handicap parking spaces, wheelchair ramps, and elevators.
We use manual testing, automated testing, and website accessibility evaluation tools to ensure our templates are accessible. If you discover an accessibility problem or an opportunity for improvement, please let us know by sending an email to support [at] webtricity [dot] com.
To help you keep your website accessible when you change it from its original state, Webtricity includes accessibility-related suggestions when choosing website colors. We also have help pages explaining different aspects of accessibility, and we're always available to answer your website accessibility questions.
