How Do I Know If My Website Meets AODA Standards?

There are a few different ways to find out if your website is compliant with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and therefore accessible to people with disabilities. You can use an automated checker which scans the website using AI, but the downside is the software is limited to how many issues it’s able to catch. 

The Accessibility Directorate of Ontario strongly recommends having your website tested by humans to get the most accurate results on your website’s AODA compliance. DigiHype Media has experts that can ensure your website meets all of the AODA standards!

There are different parts of a website that work together to meet AODA standards:

  • Developers – hiring informed designers, coders, and creators 
  • Software – the tools used to create the website have accessibility options
  • Audit tools – evaluate web accessibility with scanners or a marketing agency
  • Content – the information on your website, including; text, images, video, and sounds
  • User platforms – compatible with different web browsers and media players
  • Assistive technology – compatible with screen readers, alternative keyboards, scanning software, etc. 
  • User experience – ability to adapt strategies using the web

Considering all aspects of your digital marketing portfolio is important to ensure you follow the standards set by the AODA. Contact DigiHype Media Digital Marketing Agency in Mississauga today to get started!
