Our Commitment to Web Accessibility For Everyone

WeGo.ca Website Developers Inc. is 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

We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0 as our guiding principle for determining accessibility. These are internationally agreed-upon standards that cover a wide range of recommendations and best practices for making content useable. As we add new pages and functionality to our website, all designs, code, and content entry practices are checked against these standards.

Website accessibility is an ongoing process. We continually test content and features for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA compliance and remediate any issues to ensure we meet or exceed the standards. Testing of our website is performed by our team members using industry-standard tools such as the Accessibility Checker WordPress Plugin, color contrast analyzers, keyboard-only navigation techniques, and Flesch-Kincaid readability tests.

Accessibility Features On Our Website

The following is a list of items we have included in our website to improve its accessibility:

  1. Alt Text for Images: Provide alternative text to describe the image content or function. Alt text helps screen reader users understand the context of images.
  2. Keyboard Navigation: Ensure our website can be fully navigated using a keyboard alone, including menus, forms, and interactive elements.
  3. Text Contrast: Ensure sufficient contrast between text and background colours to make the content readable for visually impaired users.
  4. Skip Links: Include “skip to content” links to allow users to bypass repetitive navigation links.
  5. Aria Labels and Landmarks: Use ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) labels and landmarks to improve screen reader compatibility and help users navigate and understand your website’s structure.
  6. Accessible Forms: Label all form inputs clearly and provide error messages that are easy to understand to help users correct mistakes.
  7. Captioning and Transcripts: Provide captions for videos and transcripts for audio content to assist users who are deaf or hard of hearing.
  8. Consistent Navigation: Maintain consistent navigation across our website to help users understand and predict how to move around our site.
  9. Readable Fonts and Sizing: Use legible font types and allow users to adjust font sizes without breaking the site layout.
  10. Testing with Screen Readers: Regularly test our website with screen readers and other accessibility tools to identify and fix accessibility barriers.
  11. Use of Headings: Properly use and structure headings (H1, H2, H3, etc.) to create a hierarchical organization of your content, making it easier for users to navigate.
  12. Language Attribute: Set the language attribute in your website’s HTML to help screen readers use the correct pronunciation rules.
  13. Link Descriptions: Avoid vague link descriptions like “click here.” Instead, use descriptive link texts that convey the purpose of the link.
  14. Mobile Accessibility: Ensure your website is accessible on mobile devices, considering touch targets and responsive design.

Where We’re Improving

In our efforts to bring our website up to standard, we are targeting the following areas:

  • Hidden aria icons
  • Improper use of links
  • Skip link no functioning properly on Elementor Post/Page templates and full-width layout.

This is part of our broader effort to make everyone’s experience at WeGo.ca a welcoming and enjoyable one. Please note that while we make every effort to provide information accessible for all users, we cannot guarantee the accessibility of third party websites to which we may link.
