Accessible websites

We believe in accessibility for all, every visitor will be able to perceive, understand, navigate and interact with the websites we create

Including visitors with a diverse range of hearing, movement, sight, and cognitive ability.

We’re passionate about accessibility and all Maraid sites follow WCAG 2.2 guidelines compliant with Equality Act 2010 and level AA+ as standard. We understand that in order to build a good website you must have a solid understanding of all the components that make it accessible, including:

  • Good design
  • Considered information architecture
  • Clear content
  • Bespoke, clean and semantic code
  • Speed
  • Sites that work on all platforms and sceensizes
  • Regular testing

We believe that everyone working on a project from copywriter to back-end developer plays their part in creating an accessible website. We have both completed advanced accessibility training at WebCredible, London.

Working predominately in the arts, education, heritage and not-for-profit sector we only work with small teams - many of whom are often volunteers or part-time. The design and build of the admin area is as important as the live website. We work closely with clients to streamline the WordPress admin area, making it easy to use and helping to increase productivity.

We provide training and documentation on how to add accessible content to your new website.
