We routinely test websites and applications we develop for accessibility, ensuring they are usable by users of all different abilities. This includes users with visual impairments who rely on high contrast or screen reading software to access content, or who rely only on a keyboard or spoken commands for navigation.
We aim to adhere to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA standards with all our web development.
The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) in Ottawa, a long-time Andornot client, required a new version of their bilingual online catalogue and staff bibliography that would pass the strict requirements of W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Andornot helped CCI boost the requirement into an opportunity to add new features, including facets, multi-database search, spelling suggestions, and faster search performance. These features were delivered with the Andornot Discovery Interface. Read more in this blog post.
The Andornot Discovery Interface in particular has been developed with accessibility as a core component.
The VuFind discovery interface is considered quite acessible.
