The impact

100%

WCAG 2.1 AA Accessibility compliance

Disabled people are one of the most marginalized groups when it comes to human rights violations. Making sure they have access and are actually able to, without difficulty and help of others make their complaint directly improves one of the core purposes of the site

Client testimonial

Remco López

Communications & External Affairs Advisor

Together with Tekhne we developed a planning, several feedback moments and a working-method to make sure that both content-related issues from our side and designer-issues from their side were fixed on time, and the results speak for themselves; we were successful in obtaining our Fully Accessible certificate WCAG 2.0 before the governmental deadline.
I believe that Tekhne possesses the capacity and dedication to make sure that your website becomes fully accessible and enjoyable.

How we deliver?

Our implementation method is based on the Agile framework of Scrum. Using Scrum, sprint plans are created which contains a series of tasks to meet a particular requirement - system and technical mandatories, functionality development, and design enhancements. The duration of a sprint cycle and release is every 4 weeks.
