To truly achieve diversity, the digital solutions we employ must be accessible, empowering every employee to contribute actively during meetings. Accessible software not only serves as a foundation for success and equality but also streamlines our workflow, facilitating smarter and more efficient decision-making. Inaccessible software, on the other hand, is prone to mistakes. It can burden your board and waste valuable meeting time.

At Admincontrol, we recognize the importance of ensuring our products are designed with a focus on people with disabilities. Today, we proudly announce our commitment to achieving the WCAG 2.1 AA level of accessibility. We believe everyone should be able to serve and contribute to boards and enable more organizations to make their boardrooms inclusive and accessible.

With forthcoming changes to our user interface, our design and development teams are collaborating intensively to enhance the accessibility of our Board Portal. Various measures have been implemented to ensure accessibility, including adding alternative text to all images and non-text content, testing for color contrast to meet WCAG standards, employing semantic HTML, and structuring logical headings. Rigorous testing using keyboard navigation and assistive technologies like screen readers is conducted to guarantee a seamless user experience.

To deepen awareness about digital accessibility, our R&D team has organized a series of Universal Design lectures and workshops for all employees. The goal is to empower our team with the knowledge and skills necessary to champion accessibility in every aspect of our work.

Prioritize accessibility in design

Moving forward, Admincontrol will prioritize accessibility in design and user experience decisions. We are committed to integrating accessibility into our product and design planning, ensuring that it remains a core aspect of our ongoing development efforts. Our mission is to create a digital environment where everyone can fully participate and contribute, regardless of their abilities, to support everyone in your organization, creating an environment where accessibility is a natural part of the user experience.
