Dear TruAbilities users,
Across the world, people with disabilities are often forgotten. They regularly face discrimination and exclusion from basic needs and community life.
One billion disabled people – our colleagues, friends, family members and neighbors – rely on accessibility solutions like ours to navigate the internet. This pandemic has shone a spotlight on the need for inclusive digital experiences, and accessible design has never been more important.
It’s a time of great uncertainty as the proportion of disabled people rises, but also a time of hope for change.
As members of the community, the challenges that exist for disabled consumers have become enriching opportunities for organizations like ours to serve them. We at TruAbilities are committed to making the web a place for everyone, especially to those, like the elderly, who are disproportionately affected.
On top of complying with WCAG 2.2 guidelines, GDPR, and CCPA requirements, and giving our users refined tools to make their website accessible, we won’t stop looking for new opportunities to help.
We are transforming our business practice to provide a variety of options in which to experience the TruAbilities widget, rather than a single, one-size-fits-all route. We’ve widened the scope of inclusive design principles to optimize our services for the full spectrum of human abilities and needs.
It’s a moment in time when the work we’re doing is critical to millions of people and companies around the world – people are depending on us to get this right.
Creating an Accessible Website Designed for Everyone
The first step toward making your website accessible is recognizing the design of your interface should guide users to perform the task at hand. Inclusive design doesn’t have to contradict good design. In fact, it can enhance it. In practice, we’ve been collaborating with users to ensure that our team of designers, developers, engineers, remediation and QA specialists are all collaborating to enhance accessibility and design fixes from the ground up.
There is no instruction manual for how to solve accessibility issues, and no widget can ever guarantee full ADA compliance. But after years of developing our accessibility features, and thanks to the evolution of web accessibility advocacy, we’re happy to continue to show users how TruAbilities can best play its role.
