web Accessibility Services

Did you know that more than 5 million New Yorker’s have a print disability?

A person with a print disability cannot effectively read print because of a sensory, physical, developmental, cognitive, or learning disability. This includes people who are aging. People with print disabilities use assistive technologies to access digitized communications and information.


is your website and digital content accessible and usable to everyone?

Through our new Accessibility Services, Olmsted Center for Sight can evaluate your website and digital documents to ensure you comply with federal and state regulations governing digital equity and inclusion for all.

Our experienced accessibility professionals will systematically review all your digital offerings and platforms – websites, mobile applications, software, PDF documents, applications, forms – and evaluate them for accessibility, usability, and functionality.

Not only is it the right thing to do for your online customers, but making your digitized offerings and platforms fully accessible also puts you in compliance with federal and state regulations and policies.

Accessibility Services Overview:                                                                                                                                        What we can do for you….

Accessibility Evaluation

Web accessibility is not a trend it is the new standard.

As organizations’ websites, mobile applications and overall digital presence keep growing richer and more creative, they risk being less accessible to users with disabilities.

With an Accessibility Evaluation, we can provide your organization with the necessary information to achieve optimal accessibility to create and maintain an inclusive universally designed digital footprint.

Usability Testing

Companies may think their content is ready to launch, but it’s important to make certain that all potential customers can navigate content with ease before a release.

With our Usability Testing, we provide you with  real-world experience and feedback from our team of skilled blind and visually impaired skilled Assistive Technology users.

They interact with your product, website or mobile application to provide a detailed report that includes their findings; giving you a clear understanding of any challenges that a person with disabilities may encounter.
