Building accessible services

For almost two decades, we have been championing web accessibility and user-centred design principles, designing simple, intuitive and sustainable services that meet user needs.

  • Testing for compatibility

    We make sure your site works on different browsers and devices – services do not have to look perfect in every browser but users must be able to access and use all the information and features they need.

  • Progressive enhancement

    We use progressive enhancement to give your site the best possible chance of working for the majority of your users. Building your website like this will make your service more resilient.

  • Compliant WCAG frontend code

    All our projects meet WCAG 2.2 at Level AA and we can optionally provide an accessibility audit and accessibility training to help you meet the public sector accessibility requirements.

  • Semantic HTML elements

    With training and support, we’ll ensure your content editors use the correct HTML elements and attributes to mark up the content means the right information is available to assistive technology.

Frontend framework

The Mixd frontend framework serves as the cornerstone for our frontend development. Everything in our design system has already been tested for usability and accessibility, enabling us to develop fast, accessible frontend code with confidence. Additionally, our framework incorporates components from the GOV.UK / NHS Design Systems. This approach saves time – as we’re able to develop quickly with a reusable set of components designed to support a variety of specific user-focused tasks.

Resilient frontend

We build resilient frontend code using progressive enhancement to give your service the best possible chance of working for the majority of your users. Using progressive enhancement means your users will be able to do what they need to do if any part of the stack fails. This approach to development means that your service’s most basic functionality will work for users with device or connectivity limitations and, at the same time, improve accessibility making your service more resilient.
