Solve Accessibility Issues &
Enhance User Experience
Having a website that is accessible to everyone should be a part of every credit union’s marketing plan. Whether your credit union’s website needs to ensure its current compliance or is due for a redesign, taking action now to address ADA compliance standards is vital.
Almost every change made to your site that corrects accessibility issues also improves its SEO (Search Engine Optimization), a benefit often overlooked by credit unions. Nearly 1 out 5 people in the US has some kind of disability, making your credit union's website accessible improves your potential user base by up to 20%.
What is Web Accessibility?
Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the web. More specifically, web accessibility means that people with disabilities can identify, recognize, navigate and interact with a website. Web accessibility also benefits people without disabilities, including older people with changing abilities due to aging.

“Speed to Accessibility” - a sizable percentage of your inaccessible content is addressed in the first few days using the Compliance Accelerator on your website, allowing us to address and fix a great number of issues. This solution enables most credit unions to render their site accessible and to remediate coding to the greatest extent possible, conforming to WCAG 2.0 AA in less than 100 days.
“Economy” - Taking a proactive approach to accessibility for your site is far less costly than receiving a demand letter from a law firm. We offer several options to fit your budget and goals. Using a technology-first approach enables us to make sites accessible for a fraction of the cost of the traditional, manual approach.
“Monitoring” - Our programs build accessibility into the DNA of your site. While we can quickly assist you in catching up, more importantly we keep you ahead of the topic by not only making your site accessible and compliant, but also fully usable to a much larger portion of your customer base.
Try this quick accessibility test.
- Unplug the mouse and/or turn off the track-pad. Can you do everything they need to do using only the keyboard?
- Turn on the “high contrast” mode in Windows. How does the site look? High contrast is a crucial tool for the large number of low vision users.
- Turn off images. Without visual clues, does the content still make sense? Does the site still function?
- Check for captions and transcripts. Visual options and cues are necessary alternatives to audio features for hearing-impaired members.
If your website fails any one of these simple tests you will need to fix your website's coding to become accessible under the new section 508 refresh and WCAG2.0 guidelines.
