Sparxsys working in making Accessible Drupal sites for JAWS and other Screen Readers

Submitted by ravisagar on Wed, 06/05/2013 - 14:12

Since last year we are working on websites accessible so that that people with disabilities like Visual Impairment can navigate the site with the help of screen readers like JAWS. We got the opportunity to work with one Delhi based NGO who work for Visually Impaired People. We are currently building their Helpdesk Management System using Drupal where they will be able to track the records of the queries they received from all over India. We are also revamping their website.

The challenge in this project is that the users of both the site and the help desk system are visually impaired. So Accessibility was a big concern. We explored lot of options but settled for Omega Theme which is quite accessible out of the box though not lot of things needs to be fixed. We are trying to follow WCAG guidelines while building their portals.

The screen readers that they use is the famous JAWS and NVDA. This project is quite challenging but we are really enjoying working with this NGO.

We recently moved to new office at Netaji Subhash Place and lot of exciting things are happening at Sparxsys. We also hired couple of great people recently and our team is growing. We aim to be one of the best Drupal Consultancy in Delhi and NCR. We don't really want to rush to achieve lot of things at the same time. After all maintaining the quality of our work and providing the best service to our clients is our first priority.

If you are considering Drupal for your project but confused then why don't you talk to us :) Give me a call at 9811787069 to discuss your requirements or just to say hi.
