Creating inclusive and accessible digital experiences is crucial in today’s digital landscape. However, it can be complex and time-consuming to design for accessibility and inclusivity, often requiring extensive knowledge of accessibility guidelines and manual auditing processes. This can lead to designers overlooking accessibility and inclusivity considerations, resulting in inaccessible designs that exclude marginalized groups.
Beyond is a tool that automates audits and provides education to help designers implement accessibility measures in their work with less effort.
It also includes an accessibility mode that verifies the quality of annotations, such as focus order, landmarks, and alt text, by simulating them in an assistive technology environment. This ensures true inclusivity and accessibility for assistive technology users. Beyond stands out by including support for accessibility testing with people who have disabilities. This involvement guarantees that design and development efforts are genuinely inclusive and accessible.
