Thoughtbubble & Accessibility

Back in April of 1998, just as Thoughtbubble was being formed, they participated in the first ever live beta testing of the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Website Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines. They were one of fifty companies from four different countries that helped form these international guidelines that accounted for accessibility concerns.

Since then Thoughtbubble have always designed and built web projects with accessibility in mind. This is especially relevant today as it is now a legal requirement to ensure that if your web project offers the general public a service in any way it must comply with the WAI guidelines. The Disability Discrimination Act includes websites in its accessibility clauses and it's the website owner (not the designer) who can be taken to court if their site is not accessible.

While other web shops are now frantically learning how to design and build accessible websites Thoughtbubble have always offered this service. In fact, in most cases, there is no extra cost for us building a compliant website.
