I work with you and your teams to identify and solve a variety of accessibility issues.
I audit websites for accessibility. Sites are reviewed manually, using a variety of tools, for compliance against relevant standards (such as WCAG), and best practices. I provide a detailed report explaining the barriers found on the site, and where possible, suggesting fixes.
I offer technical support to developers to rectify and remediate accessibility barriers.
Several of my articles have been published in print and web magazines.
I write simple, clear and concise documentation, presented in accessible formats.
And of course I blog on this site and as a guest blogger on a variety of topics around accessibility, inclusion and disability.
There are legal, commercial and human reasons to implement accessibility
