508 Compliance and Accessibility

At Forum One, accessibility goes beyond checking a box – it is essential to serving real-world audiences. We build accessibility into every digital product we design and develop, and we can help you do the same.

Forum One’s experts will work with you to comply with accessibility standards and requirements, and incorporate simple best practices to make sure your digital content works for all of your users.

An All-Access Pass to Your Content

Section 508, the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, and online accessibility in general can seem complicated, even daunting – but our experts understand that compliance and accessibility follow the same best practices as strategic, user-friendly, and elegant user experience and design.

The general idea is that there should be no separate website or digital document for people with disabilities. One site – designed and coded in line with best practices for content organization, color contrast, tagging, and more – ensures audiences using assistive technologies like screen readers and voiceover tools can access all of the same information as everyone else.
