Transformed into An AODA Compliant Website to Improve Online Experience
Some years ago, Ontario introduced some new measures called the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to boost accessibility in a number of ways, and that includes being able to navigate websites more easily based on international Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0).
While 1-800-Rid-Of-It that specializes in junk removal in Toronto doesn’t actually fall under the requirements (not until 2025 😊), it has received feedback from some of its valued clients with disabilities about some features of the site that are difficult for them to access. With this in mind, 1-800-Rid-Of-It has decided to make some website changes to aid in its navigation and is pleased to announce that the website is now accessible by everyone.
Personalizing Website for the Disability Community
With the changes being made to the same day junk removal site, the disability community will be able to personalize their experience to make it easier to use. For example, visitors can change variables such as making it safer for those with visual impairments, cognitive ability challenges, while removing unnecessary distractions for those with ADHD.
There are also some animations on websites that can be a seizure trigger for those with epilepsy, and the site updates will allow visitors to bypass them. The site will also offer some image recognition capabilities, which will improve visual descriptions for those using screen readers. If the site visitors cannot physically type, the site will now also feature a virtual keyboard that can be used with a mouse.
For people with cognitive challenges, they will be able to access a built-in dictionary that describes certain terminology that might be difficult to understand, for example, if it’s slang.
Access Services from Junk Removal in Toronto and The GTA More Easily
Aside from these features, there are a number of others that will help bring the junk removal in Toronto website to the next level. You’ll be able to adjust font size or magnify words, as well as change the site’s font type to a more readable version. You’ll also have the option to better highlight links to locate them more easily.
The website will be reviewed and updated regularly for any new accessibility updates!
