Our goal is to make every website accessible to all visitors.
15% of people worldwide experience disability. That amounts to about 1 billion humans. The internet has made it possible for everyone, regardless of their ability, to access ideas and information online. We believe that online access is a human right and that universal accessibility can be achieved through good design, sound technology and informed policy.
Manoverboard is committed to making all of our websites accessible — and usable — for internet visitors, including and especially for those who use assistive technologies. We build accessible websites because it is the right thing to do — for our clients and for their visitors. A fully inclusive web means that every person should have access to the same information and ideas.
Launched May 2022 (v1.0)
There are three levels of standards conformance within the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 guidelines: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA. The Make-It-Accessible website complies with Level AA requirements to the best of our ability. We will continue to do our best to seek out design, technical, and content solutions that further our ability to meet create accessible websites.
We use the WCAG Quick Reference Guide as a core checklist to track progress during the design and development of any Manoverboard website, including this one.
Note: This site will undergo testing by a cross section of users with various disabilities in December 2022. The testing and co-design sessions provided additional guidance and feedback and identified a number of accessibility issues. We plan on remediating these issues in 2023.
