Is Your Business Digitally Accessible?
Make Your Business for Everyone!
Don't Lose Customers Because You're Not Accessible
You might not know it, but the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) has been active in Ontario since 2005. This law sets out the requirements and standards that organizations and businesses must follow in order to provide accessibility to all Ontarians.
As part of these regulations, businesses are (or will soon be, depending on their structure and size) required to take a number of steps to ensure that the information and services they provide online (and offline) are accessible to those with disabilities.
Among these requirements are the need for accessible websites, accessible digital documents (like PDFs, presentations, Word documents, and spreadsheets), and accessible media.
You’ve no doubt seen the spate of lawsuits in the United States around their Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and it’s only a matter of time before the same thing happens north of the border. With One Guy Creative’s accessibility services, you can prepare your business, and protect yourself against potentially crippling lawsuits!
What I Can Do for You
Make Sure Your Business is AODA Compliant
Despite what you may have heard, there’s more to being digitally accessible than just having a website with proper HTML tags… a LOT more. With One Guy Creative, you can be certain that your digital documents, online video, and website are compliant with AODA regulations, protecting your business, and ensuring that your customers can access the information they need regardless of any disabilities they might have.
According to a 2017 Canadian survey on disabilities, around 15% of Canadians (that’s 6.2 MILLION people) have one or more disabilities that can hinder their day-to-day life. That’s a huge market to be missing out on because your digital content isn’t accessible.
One Guy Creative can make your digital documents (PDFs, Word Docs, Excel Docs, and PowerPoint Presentations) fully accessible, and compliant with current standards. Over the coming years, this will become standard procedure for all digital documents, so if your business offers downloadable or shareable forms, documents, spreadsheets, or presentations, it’s essential you get a head start on the process, or face potential financial penalties in the near future.
In addition to accessible documentation, I also offer my clients full website accessibility audits, recommendations, and even remediation (although this often requires a new website, given the poor accessibility and lack of forward planning in many website builds).
Finally, in order to ensure your video content is accessible, I offer a range of accessible video services, including SRT (captions) file creation, closed and option captioning, and audio described video (this is most effective during the planning stages of your video, where the script can be amended to allow for audio description).
All accessible services provided by One Guy Creative are thoroughly double-checked by one of Canada’s leading digital accessibility experts to ensure the utmost quality of service.
