Making content accessible to all

Public sector websites and apps must become accessible according to the EU decision. But accessibility benefits not only people with disabilities. Compliance with standards offers a wide range of benefits that are often forgotten at first sight or are sometimes hardly known: Because there is a strong business case for accessibility.

Accessibility overlaps with other web design best practices, such as responsiveness, device and platform independence, usability, design for older users and search engine optimisation (SEO). Case studies show that accessible websites deliver better search results, reduce maintenance costs and increase target audiences. On this website you will learn why you too should revise your online and mobile offerings.

Your benefits

Increased range

Increase the number of potential users by making your website more accessible regardless of security settings.

Short charging times

Web pages must load quickly, otherwise the Internet user will be frustrated and turn to another site.

Positive image effect

Make use of accessibility in communication. Show that social commitment is lived in practice.

Search Engine Optimisation

The collected benefits for users of accessible websites are also rewarded by the search engines.

Responsiveness (Recommended)

The website can be accessed from various devices with different sizes.


Clarity, tested colour contrasts, easily readable and enlargeable fonts ensure a good design.


Clarity, tested colour contrasts, easily readable and enlargeable fonts ensure a good design.


Current standards must be observed. These strict requirements guarantee high technical quality.


User-friendliness (also called usability) is particularly high for accessible websites.

3 steps to accessibility

1. recognise the need

The EU has decided that public sector websites and apps must become accessible. Negotiators in EU bodies have agreed on a directive to make online and mobile public services more accessible, in particular for the visually impaired, blind, deaf and hard of hearing.

The text approved by the Permanent Representatives Committee for the European Parliament and Council directive on making public sector websites more accessible has yet to be formally endorsed by the EU Parliament and Council. The directive will enter into force after publication of the text in the Official Journal. EU Member States will then have 21 months to transpose the requirements into national law.

2. we take over the implementation

When converting your existing web offer to accessibility, we focus on a “usability” that puts a diverse user community at the centre. The four principles of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 perceptibility, comprehensibility, usability and robustness are basic requirements for our solution. Our experts take these principles into account on a technical level as well as on a design and content level.
Our services start with the analysis of existing websites, the conception and project planning, the technical optimisation, adaptation or, if necessary, new development of your web offer. Ongoing testing and the introduction of a permanent quality assurance are also part of our service.

3. you receive the verification

Small barriers can lead to big problems in practice. For this reason, accessibility should always be checked. There is no official and binding certificate that certifies the barrier-free implementation of a website. Nevertheless, there are a number of proven technologies for the verification of barrier-free web presences.

Based on the current Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 as well as the Barrier-free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV) 2.0, we will provide you with a test protocol or expert opinion on the implementation of accessibility on your website. It shows the similarities and differences between the actual and target state as well as ways to improve the actual state of accessibility. You as the provider of a website can be sure that the online offer with a high degree of accessibility complies with the guidelines of the BITV, which are legally required in Germany for all websites of public authorities and the federal administration.
