Making sure your website is legally compliant
"How do we make sure that our website meets current accessibility standards and is open for all?"
"At Polemark, we firmly believe in accessible website design and our websites comply with Conformance Priority Level "AA" as a minimum standard. Accessibility is taken very seriously by our developing team."
Since the UK Disability Discrimination Act became law in 2005, ensuring websites are available for all has become a major focus for website owners and developers. Conformance with W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG) is now the subject of considerable activity, both legal and technical, for most organisations.
Polemark has researched how people with disabilities currently access the Internet by using specialist browsers and assistive technologies. This means that our clients automatically benefit from our expertise when working with us and are certain they will receive a product that has enhanced usability; supports their business needs; and, most importantly, complies with internationally recognised standards.

Our development team test pages rigorously to ensure our work is always standards compliant. We firmly believe a website should be open for all. With an estimated 20% of all Internet users physically challenged in some way, the need for an accessible website is business critical.
