The division of roles and priorities can create a gap in accountability, one which web accessibility often falls through. Siteimprove narrows this gap by presenting issues relevant to different roles streamlining efficiency and accountability.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
Software-as-a-Service company Siteimprove released its improved website accessibility tool today. With new features and a redesigned layout for simplicity, the service now allows people to approach tasks based on their job role, making it easier to get started with web accessibility.
Senior eAccessibility Specialist Helene Nørgaard Bech knows that working with web accessibility can be challenging, but she strongly believes a role-based approach to tasks is an accessibility best practice.
“The division of roles and priorities between a webmaster, editor and developer can create a gap in accountability, one which web accessibility often falls through,” said Nørgaard Bech. “Siteimprove narrows this gap by presenting issues relevant to different roles, streamlining efficiency and accountability.”
Traditionally the tool has divided issues based on the WCAG 2.0 conformance levels: A, AA and AAA but now also offers an issue-specific approach that allows users to easily see issues within areas like headings, links, images and forms. The redesigned layout also introduces a color categorization system to aid and simplify task prioritization.
Throughout the year, as part of Siteimprove’s ongoing commitment to web accessibility they release a number of helpful resources. Download Siteimprove’s latest eBook ‘The Must-Have Accessibility Handbook’ with tips and tricks on web accessibility. http://go.siteimprove.com/handbook1
