My Commitment to Web Accessibility

I am committed to providing a fully accessible website experience for all users of all abilities, including those who rely on assistive technologies like screen readers, screen enlargement software, and alternative keyboard input devices to navigate the web.

Ongoing Efforts to Ensure Accessibility

I follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 as my guiding principle for determining accessibility. These internationally agreed-upon standards cover various recommendations and best practices for making content useable. As I add new pages and functionality to my website, all designs, code, and content entry practices are checked against these standards.

Website accessibility is an ongoing process. I continually test content and features for WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance and remediate any issues to ensure my website meets or exceeds the standards. I test my website using industry-standard tools such as accessibility checkers, colour contrast analyzers, keyboard-only navigation techniques, and Flesch-Kincaid readability tests.

I also consult with my networks of friends, people with disabilities, and accessibility/disability advocates for their suggestions and advice to improve my website and my accessibility knowledge.

Accessibility Features On My Website

The following is a list of items I use and include in my website to improve its accessibility:

Where I am trying to Improve

In my efforts to make my website up to standard, I am targeting the following areas:

  • Create an accessible photo and portfolio gallery.
  • Make every possible attempt to add alternative text for my content, including selected photographs, posters, videos, and other media.
  • If possible, a short text description of videos and transcript of audio files will be posted on my website.

This is part of my broader effort to make everyone’s experience on my website welcoming and enjoyable. While I make every effort to provide information accessible for all users, I apologize for the areas where I cannot provide equal and accessible accommodations on my website and services. I also cannot guarantee the accessibility of third-party websites to which I may link through my website.

I welcome comments, questions, and feedback on my website. If you use assistive technologies and have difficulty using my website, please email or message me on WhatsApp. I will do my best to assist you and resolve issues. I appreciate your support while improving my knowledge and experience in accessibility, web design, content making, and photography.
