Web accessibility

Democracy Developers is committed to providing a fully accessible website experience for all users of all abilities, including those who rely on assistive technologies like screen readers, screen enlargement software, and alternative keyboard input devices to navigate the web.


Ongoing efforts to ensure accessibility

We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 as our guiding principle for determining accessibility. These are internationally agreed-upon standards that cover a wide range of recommendations and best practices for making content useable. As we add new pages and functionality to our website, all designs, code, and content entry practices are checked against these standards.

Website accessibility is an ongoing process. We continually test content and features for WCAG 2.1 compliance and remediate any issues to ensure we meet standards. Testing of our website is performed by our team members using tools such as (test score of 90%) and Accessibility Checker. We have also checked readability on Windows using JAWS with Chrome.


Where we’re improving

Democracy Developers is predominately a volunteer organisation. In our efforts to bring our website up to the highest standards of accessibility, we welcome and encourage your input into areas of the site where we can make improvements.

This is part of our broader effort to make everyone’s experience at Democracy Developers a welcoming and enjoyable one. Please note that while we make every effort to provide information accessible for all users, we cannot guarantee the accessibility of third party websites to which we may link.
