Armidale Regional Council
Armidale regional council approached Multibase to implement web accessibility (WCAG 2.1) to their website to make it accessible to people with low vision, people with cognitive and learning disabilities.
The efforts put into web accessibility was to make web content more accessible to people with disabilities. Web content generally refers to the information in a web page or web application including natural information such as text, images, sounds and code or mark-up that defines structure and presentation.
Applying web accessibility into the pre-built site with tons of content was a key challenge. The responsiveness and website original branding had to be maintained whilst applying the recommendations from WCAG.
Multibase implemented the web content accessibility in a cost effective way. The rules were applied globally for easier maintainability and provided documentaion for content managers to effectively maintain new content according to WCAG rules and recommendations.
With the responsiveness of the site and required web accessibility features the site appears very professional and user friendly. The generic solution applied across the site has made the publishers focus only on the content of the website rather other web accessibility requirements.
