WeCo’s New “User-Focused” Tools to Improve Your Organization’s Digital Accessibility

WeCo works hard to find ways to connect you directly with users and professionals who live with disabilities who are experts at digital accessibility.  We are pleased to announce the development of two new services to help you make your website and software even more accessible!

Accessibility Inventory Audit Service

Knowing where you are and how far you need to go, to reach digital access, is a great place to start.  WeCo’s Accessibility Inventory Audit Service provides you with a list of what is accessible, and what isn’t.  In an easy-to-read report, with tips for fixing what needs to be more accessible on your website or in your software.

Video Description Service Designed to Meet the Needs of Non-Visual Users

Organizations working to meet WCAG 2.0 and WeCo’s Standards of Access® need to provide videos that provide auditory description for blind and low-vision users.  Yet many video descriptor services do not provide the level of detail that gives a video experience to your customers that is equal to that of your sighted customers.

WeCo is teaming up with Digital Wagon Train to bring a new type of video description that provides more complete detail in a ground-breaking user-focused product.  WeCo/DWT Video Description Service is currently in beta but will be released soon.

More to come!
