Our goal is to make every website accessible to all visitors.
Approximately one in five people in Canada (approximately 7.6 million people) live with one or more disabilities. The internet has made it possible for everyone, regardless of their ability, to access ideas and information online. We believe that online access is a human right and that universal accessibility can be achieved through good design, sound technology and informed policy.
Manoverboard is committed to making all of our websites accessible — and usable — for internet visitors, including and especially for those who use assistive technologies. We build accessible websites because it is the right thing to do — for our clients and for their visitors. A fully inclusive web means that every person should have access to the same information and ideas.
There are three levels of standards conformance within the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 guidelines: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA. The current Manoverboard website complies with nearly all Level AA requirements. We will continue to do our best to seek out design, technical and content solutions that bring every component of this website up to those standards.
We use the WCAG Quick Reference Guide as a core checklist to track progress during the design and development of any Manoverboard website, including this one.
