Firecrux works in a user-friendly way and makes the website is accessible to the largest possible number of users, meeting applicable standards. WCAG 2.0, or “Web Accessibility Guidelines”, are the collected guidelines that relate to how to create and develop websites. Compliance with the guidelines published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) allows us to ensure access to web content for the widest possible audience, including people with disabilities.
The rules that build WCAG 2.0 are:
- Reliability – the content should be published in a solid way. That is understandable and coreectly interpreted by the software, and should also interact with other technologies that support the use of the Onternet for example: reader – created for the visually impaired.
- Functionality – created functionality should be possible be used and exploited
- Percebility – the elements on the page must be presented to users in a way that is understandable to their senses.
- Understandability – using the interface, buttons and other information must be understandable to the user.
Compliance with WCAG 2.0 guidelines and principles will allow us to increase the accessibility of internet content for people with disabilities. To meet this task, we work with an independent agency that verifies the website and periodically assesses our activities. We care about quality and we make every effort to increase the availability of Internet content for people with disabilities, therefore compliance with WCAG 2.0 standards is our priority. The Firecrux team strives for providing all the information you need when visiting our website.
- Transcripts for podcasts, thanks to which we enable people with hearing- or hearing-impaired speakers to use the content.
- Alternative text for images to allow screen reader users and visually impaired people to identify and make sense of useful images.
- Form labels and controls that are associated with the relevant prompt
- Content that can be increased with the help of a standard browser control. The CAPTCHA elements provide a replaceable way of using this information.
