Cognitive Web Accessibility Assessments: 2 UK Sites With Top Scores

I performed cognitive Web accessibility assessments on five more sites.  Two of them, both of organizations located in the United Kingdom, received all possible points.  The results for the rest were varied.

Site Highlights

People First

The People First site features a large site-navigation menu (pictured below). For menu options, there are contextually-relevant icons, which are also used throughout the site.

Mencap

The Mencap site incorporates many captioned videos (example pictured below) as an alternative to text content, and relevant images to augment it.  The site’s My Life section is specifically designed for constituents, with plain language; simple navigation, and lots of images and videos.

Conclusion

Though the Web sites of Mencap and People First have minor problems, it is apparent the two organizations expended great effort to make them accessible to their constituencies.  I offer my congratulations.
