Welcome to S.Barnes Designs
Specializing in digital accessibility website design and remediation
At S. Barnes Designs, we specialize in creating accessible WordPress websites that are an extension of your business.
We offer custom design or branded template sites. Your website can be as simple as it needs to be or as extravagant as you want it to be.
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.

Already have a website and need to make it more accessible? Check out our Accessibility review . We go through your website and provide a report on the errors that need to be fixed. At that point you can choose to make the changes yourself or bring us on to do them for you.
