At Interpix Design we are AODA experts
As usability experts Interpix has been designing inclusive digital experiences for 20 years. We follow a proven process that seeks to; understand users with laser clarity, evaluate how they use digital products, and refine or design solutions to fix digital problems. Delivering real value to your customer drives every digital experience we design.
With the introduction of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) this process has never been more important. Websites and web content of public and private companies in Ontario, Canada need to comply with specific accessibility requirements. Under international agreement, websites and web content must adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Set out by accessibility experts (like Interpix) these guidelines detail what needs to be done to ensure your website is fully accessible.
Why AODA compliance is good business
Ensuring every user has a positive, barrier free experience with your digital product is fundamental to usability design. But there are important business reasons too. According to The Path to 2025: Ontario’s Accessibility Action Plan there are 1.8 million people with disabilities living in Ontario and it’s estimated that a “more accessible province” will increase gross domestic product by $600 a year per capita.*
Moreover, AODA compliance is the law. Beginning January 1, 2021 all public websites and web content posted after January 1, 2012 must meet WCAG 2.0 Level AA compliance.
