Shawna updated and cleaned up my company's website, and the results were night and day. Not only was she able to update and modernize our website, but our stats have improved tremendously!

Digital accessibility is making digital products, like your website, accessible to the 1 in 5 users with a variety of disabilities. 

When we design your website, or re-design, we do so with an eye to accessibility standards and follow the ONLY federal guidelines currently published – Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. We build digital accessibility best practices into our design process. These legal guidelines adhere to the WCAG 2.1 recommendations (as published by the World Wide Web Consortium, W3C). We also take the extra step by having our Accessibility Partner, Rob Stemple, go through your site with four of the most commonly used screen reader applications.
