Who is Webbism?

At Webbism we understand the needs of the end user. That’s why we work with your organisation to offer training, compliance reviews, user testing rectification, planning, advice, workshops and ongoing implementation support tailored to your requirements.

Web accessibility is completely central to our work process. When we consult on projects with our clients we don’t draw on web accessibility as a special consideration, rather, we focus on meeting the needs of the end user.

This allows us to focus on individual diversity. We all know that there is no magic pixie dust to make websites accessible for every human variation, so we use the tools, processes and thankfully, some common-sense to identify barriers and make user experience our first responsibility.

I'm all about helping organisations achieve the best outcomes when it comes to user centered design. That's because web accessibility is not just a professional pursuit, it is a personal passion.

When I consult on projects with clients I don't draw on accessibility as a special consideration, rather, I focus on meeting the needs of the end user. I use the tools, processes and thankfully, some common-sense to identify barriers, meet web standards and make user experience the first responsibility.

As a person with a cognitive disability (Dyslexia) I have an in-depth understanding of the web accessibility barriers that affect me personally. One of my pet hates is the ever persistent CAPTCHA Solving them invoke emotions that range from frustration, anger, and confusion. Often I ask myself "Why does this need to be here?"​ and "Did the person who designed this site think about people like me?"
  
Good accessibility means that we can anticipate a variety of human capabilities so to provide effective solutions that benefits everyone. By providing a fully tested web accessibility audit, the client is able to work within their service delivery framework and fulfil a vital portion of responsible web development.
