Webcredible has today announced the unveiling of their new accessibility support packages. "Companies and organisations are always coming to us for ad hoc advice about accessibility and CSS coding. These support packages are a way of formalising this for all parties," says Managing Director, Trenton Moss.
In October 1999 part 3 of the Disability Discrimination Act came into force. Since then, it's been a legal requirement that organisations make reasonable adjustments to their websites in order to make them accessible to blind and disabled users. Many organisations are attempting to fulfil their legal and ethical obligations by trying to make changes to their websites, but with so much conflicting advice out there confusion has reigned.
Mr Moss continues, "This kind of accessibility support package is totally innovative. Web developers are confused as to whose conflicting advice to follow and we believe are crying out for this kind of service, which no other organisation is offering. Nowadays senior management are putting so much pressure on web teams to ensure their sites are accessible so these teams really need authoritative ongoing guidance and advice." Indeed he may be right. Webcredible has already received interest from a number of large organisations looking to sign up to the service.
Support packages range from half a day up to two days per month and start from just £400 a month. Your time allowance can be split however you like and you need not inform Webcredible how you wish to manage the time. In fact, you can pick up the phone (or send an e-mail) and get help with any accessibility, HTML or CSS problems you may have any time between 9.30 and 5.30 from Monday to Friday.
To find out more about the support packages you can contact Webcredible on 0870 242 6095 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also read about this service at http://www.webcredible.co.uk/support.
