Web accessibility means that all people can use a website or mobile application – regardless of whether they live with a disability or are currently impaired. Impairments can be both permanent characteristics (e. g. blindness) and situational circumstances (e. g. children screaming). With an accessible design, you therefore support millions of users in different life situations.
We analyze to what extent your website or application complies with the official standards for accessibility. In this review, we are guided by the guidelines of the German “Barrierefreie-Informationstechnik-Verordnung” (BITV 2.0) or the International Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).
In a report, we compile the results of the analysis in a structured and comprehensible manner. We will also provide you with concrete, technically feasible suggestions for improvement to remove any barriers identified.
Depending on the project context and requirements, we may additionally involve people with disabilities in the review to gather feedback on web accessibility.
In such a test, participants complete realistic tasks in their specific context that cover the main use cases of your website or application. This allows you to see whether the accessibility of your product stands up to a real-world check.
Disabilities affect all people. While some of us live with a disability permanently, others are affected only in specific situations. People can...
The goal of accessibility is to provide equal access to web content and mobile applications for everyone in every situation.
The German Barrierefreie-Informationstechnik-Verordnung (BITV 2.0) provides a legal basis for the accessible design of websites and mobile applications in Germany. Through this ordinance, public bodies in particular are obliged to ensure the accessibility of their websites and mobile applications for people with disabilities.
At European level, the European Accessibility Act (EAA) was introduced in 2019. This directive must be applied in all EU member states as of July 28, 2025. It prescribes that many products and services must be accessible in the future. This includes, for example, online stores and ticket vending machines.
Accessibly designed websites allow an easier use for everyone and offer additional advantages:
Web accessibility is currently only mandatory for websites and applications of public bodies. In principle, however, accessible design is always sensible, as it results in advantages for every website provider (e. g. better usability for everyone, better findability in search engines). That is why we always advise checking websites and mobile applications for their web accessibility.
If you already have an existing website, we will be happy to check it for web accessibility. At that time, we can also include people with disabilities in the review for a real-world test.
However, it is best to consider web accessibility at the design and development stage to identify and avoid barriers early on.
After a testing, you will receive a test report, which public bodies have to disclose on their websites, for example.
Accessible design of many products will soon be required by law. Start making your products accessible to everyone now.
No one can give you more valuable feedback on the success of an accessible design than the people who depend on it.
In addition to technical aspects, the accessibility of a website is directly related to the design in many respects. For example: How can sufficient contrasts be ensured while still complying with the colors of the corporate design?
Our UX design team helps you find answers to this type of questions and develops accessible design solutions for your website or application. We start by creating simple prototypes (prototyping, which are then iteratively transformed into a final, interactive concept.
Feel free to contact us with your individual questions and challenges. We will be happy to advise you.
As a result, you receive a detailed test report. In it, we show you which test criteria your website or application already meets and how you can eliminate any barriers that still exist. If we come to the conclusion that your website is accessible, you can make this result visible on your website with a corresponding test seal.
Depending on the agreed scope of the project, we complement this expert perspective with feedback from people with disabilities who have tested your website or application.
As a public body, you also have to publish an accessibility statement. We will gladly create such a declaration for you after we have analyzed your website. Of course, we comply with the legal guidelines and mandatory content.
If you assign us with the conception of an accessible website, you will receive a prototype at the end of the project, including detailed documentation. We are also happy to support you with the technical implementation afterwards.
Do you have specific questions about guaranteeing accessibility in your project? We will be happy to advise you. Free of charge and with no obligation.
