Accessible websites as the standard

Accessibility ensures that all users can access and navigate your website. We offer accessibility auditing and web compliance that will ensure your website meets (or will meet) the required level of WCAG 2.1.

Our accessibility philosophy

What is website accessibility?

Website accessibility is an inclusive approach to web design and development that enables people with disabilities to use, understand and navigate the web.

An accessible website opens up your organisation to a whole new group of people, and ensures that the user experience is as optimal as possible.

Accessibility is especially important for those who experience:

Cognitive disabilities, such as dyslexia or dementia

Physical disabilities or 
motor skills
Icon of an eye, partially obscured
Photosensitive seizures
Icon of an ear, indicating hearing
Hearing impairments

Visual impairments
1 in 5 Australians have some form of disability.
15% of the world’s population live with a disability.

Why is web accessibility essential?

Web accessibility allows all users to comfortably navigate your website. Without an accessible website, you’re excluding at least 15% of your potential users.

Yet in a 2022 survey, 96.8% of homepages failed WCAG 2.

For organisations in the healthcare, education and not-for-profit sectors, accessibility is especially important.

Plus – it’s quickly becoming more than an ‘optional extra’. For Australian government organisations, it is a legal requirement to meet WCAG 2.1 AA as a minimum.

Benefits of website accessibility

Your website should be usable by everyone

If a user can’t interact with your website, they are unlikely to engage your services. Ensuring that your website is accessible means that all of your users can access and navigate your services, which, for health providers, is an absolute necessity.

Web accessibility isn’t just for people with disabilities. It can make the user experience better for everyone, but it can be especially helpful to:

People with “temporary” or “situational” disabilities

People who have slow or limited access to internet
Watch icon
People using a device with a small screen, such as a mobile phone or smart watch

How can we help you?

  • Auditing

    Audit your existing website’s level of current accessibility and identify the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’. Dux offers accessibility auditing as a service, which involves using a variety of tools and human resources to analyse your website’s accessibility.
  • Implementation

    Develop and implement a strategy to become compliant, whether that’s through minor tweaks or major changes. Our designers & developers are experienced in accessibility and can guide you through the process of crafting an AA compliant website.
  • Ongoing Evaluation

    Accessibility isn’t a once-off process. Many organisations test every three months and update their website accessibility statements based on what has (or hasn’t) been resolved.
