ADOT - The New Standard for Accessibility on the Web

You may be familiar the standard URL notation that indicates mobile optimized websites (for example m.yourwebsite.com), pronounced Mdot. Well, now there is a new dot in town for accessibility optimized websites (for example a.yourwebsite.com, adot.yourwebsite.com, or a-dot.yourwebsite.com) pronounced Adot. Adot lets users know your website is WCAG compliant with full accessibility features for users with disabilities, including people who are blind and visually impaired. Adot will become the tag of choice to let the disabled community identify and choose sites with full accessibility (including ease of use, navigation, and text to speech options).

Adot is a comprehensive web content accessibility service that combines consulting, troubleshooting, web development, and training to ensure that your website becomes, and stays, fully accessible and usable by people with disabilities.

The SeeWriteHear team provides Adot services tailored to your needs. Starting with a complete analysis of your website and content, we will build a fully accessible version of your site (your Adot site) matched to your specs while providing an equal-access user experience (UX) for all your visitors. We ensure not only legal compliance, but also usability and functionality. Visitors to your site will not only be able to simply access your content, but also fully enjoy and benefit from it.

Once a website is accessible as indicated by our Adot tag, our services don't end there. We provide training to help you maintain your Adot website's accessibility. Our team provides webinars, onsite training, and Q&A sessions that carefully guide you through the requirements, techniques, and pitfalls of accessible content creation, deployment, and maintenance.

We can also maintain your accessible Adot site for you, updating your site additions with accessible versions.

Adot certification from SeeWriteHear means:

  • Your website is compliant with all federal rules for online access, including Section 508 and the ADA.
  • Your site meets level AA of the WCAG guidelines, one of the most commonly used standards for web accessibility.
  • Your web content is usable and meaningful to visitors with disabilities.
