Our Commitment to Web Accessibility

At Yorbl, we believe in creating an inclusive online experience for all visitors. We are committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to individuals with disabilities and strive to meet or exceed the requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.

Ongoing Efforts to Ensure Accessibility

We understand that accessibility is an ongoing process. Our website undergoes regular reviews and assessments to identify areas for improvement.

We actively seek feedback from users with disabilities to enhance our accessibility features continually. We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 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.

Testing of our website is performed by our team members using industry-standard tools such as the Accessibility Checker WordPress Plugin, colour contrast analysers, keyboard-only navigation techniques, and Flesch-Kincaid readability tests.

Standards Compliance

We aim to meet Level AA of the WCAG 2.1 standards, which provides specific guidelines for making web content more accessible. By adhering to these standards, we strive to provide a website that is not only compliant but also user-friendly for individuals of all abilities.

Continuous Training

Our team is trained on accessibility best practices to create a culture of awareness and understanding. By fostering a commitment to accessibility within our organization, we aim to consistently improve the user experience for all visitors. 

Accessibility Features On Our Website

Our website is designed to be compatible with a variety of assistive technologies, including screen readers, magnifiers, voice recognition software, and more. We work to ensure that our content is perceivable, operable, and understandable for users relying on assistive technologies.

Where We’re Improving

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

    • Alternative text on images
    • Make all functionality accessible straight from a keyboard

    This is part of our broader effort to make everyone’s experience at Yorbl 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.
