Web Accessibility Performance

September 19, 2022
Web accessibility providers tend to focus on how their products assist users with disabilities—and for obvious (and good) reasons. But not much is reported on how these products and services affect those who do not need web accessibility enhancements.

Businesses and organizations want to ensure that the high-performance levels of their websites are not affected by new widgets or remediation within the inner code. Many clients approach us with this concern, sometimes following bad experiences, which is why it’s important for us to mitigate these fears entirely.

Maintain your website’s seamless performance levels with EqualWeb

While some individuals with disabilities require web accessibility features, those who engage with web content on a day-to-day basis do not. After all, these users make up the majority of websites’ visitors, and our goal as an accessibility solution company is not only to cater to those with disabilities but to ensure that those who do not require accessible websites experience no downside in their browsing experience. This EqualWeb achieves in full magnitude.

Not all web accessibility vendors can provide seamless browsing for both types of users—those with disabilities and those without. If a vendor changes the website’s code, enabling accessibility features in the backend, the website’s performance may slow down, especially for a high-traffic and complex website.

A web accessibility vendor that offers an accessibility overlay, on the other hand, may avoid this problem, but then the speed of the overlay activation and its integration with the website may vary greatly, depending on the quality of the technology.

EqualWeb offers the most advanced automated solution that does not interfere with the website’s backend and instead stores the information on EqualWeb’s servers. This allows for the continued, uninterrupted high performance of the website as experienced by its regular visitors and a seamless browsing experience for users with impairments who make use of the accessibility technology at the highest levels of inclusivity.

EqualWeb solution speed

When the EqualWeb automated interface is activated the first time, it takes just 0.09 seconds for it to launch. Subsequent activations that run on the browser’s cache will take a mere 0.001 seconds to activate.

These are the fastest activating times in the web accessibility market.

Your website is safe at the hands of EqualWeb

To summarize, the EqualWeb solution makes your website accessible to those with disabilities, adding more engagement and visitors to your business, while at the same time not interfering with your website’s backend code or performance levels so that the browsing experience of your existing users remains unchanged. In fact, they would not even notice the difference.

EqualWeb commits to providing its clients with the best possible services, protecting them from ADA-related lawsuits, and conforming the website to WCAG 2.2 guidelines, while always keeping in mind that its clients’ business needs come first. Our purpose is to integrate those needs with accessibility laws and benefits, ensuring compliance and more engagement simultaneously.

What are the new guidelines of WCAG 2.2? How can you ensure your website is still accessible and compliant with the new updates? What does EqualWeb cover from the WCAG 2.2 requirements and what it does not? What has changed from WCAG 2.2 and what remained the same? We compiled all the answers in the following article.

From now on, users can access accessibility functions like Voice Navigation, Color Adjustments, and Image Descriptors, among others. The Fnac website is now more accessible for users with different types of disabilities, including seniors.

Closed captions for videos and audio content enable people with hearing impairments to understand the content. EqualWeb has become the first web accessibility vendor to provide a video and audio closed captions option for people with disabilities as part of its automatic services.

The unique benefit of the function is that it’s entirely automatic. Moreover, as the website owner, you can modify the automatic generic text if you find a mismatch between the video and the text (the AI may miss a few words here and there), using the Captions Editor in your dashboard.

The closed captions function includes a simple on-and-off activation button, a rating vote for feedback purposes, a new transcription window over the video or audio element, and a captions download option. The captions’ font conforms to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 standards for easily accessible fonts.
