Our mission; to remove barriers to the Internet
as a communications medium.
What are these barriers? For a website, these barriers include:
Websites are often not designed to accommodate people with disabilities. Website accessibility can also be an issue for visitors using mobile devices and can have a direct effect on search engine performance. If we address accessibility, our content has a larger reach.
Even websites with content management systems can be impossible for owners to update. One of the great promises of the Internet is the ability to publish content easily and at low cost. Unintuitive tools and lack of training leave this opportunity unrealized.
Many websites are put together with inconsistencies in design or content or have glaring usability problems. Even on a budget, you should be able to publish a website that this thoughtfully put together and speaks consistently, to its audience.
From server speed to quality of coding and markup, website performance will impact whether a site shows up in search and whether a visitor stays on the site to hear its message.
