Accessibility

Newland ensures our new projects are accessible by conforming to the latest web standards. This assures the public a general level of accessibility by increasing reach to different technologies used to access the Internet. Accessibility levels required by many government organizations can be very high and those projects may be twice as complex as other online applications.

In simple terms web accessibility means a website is available to as many people as possible including those with disabilities and aging users with changing abilities. Accessibility enables people to understand, navigate, interact and contribute to the web with or without assistive technology.

Designing for accessibility is far more cost-effective than retrofitting older web projects and reduces site maintenance costs going forward.
Accessible technologies like CSS, XHTML, and JavaScript enable more accessible content, navigation and data input.
