O2 partners for web accessibility

O2 has entered a partnership with Segala to validate all its web-based products against WAI AA guidelines, promoting a high degree of usability for people with disabilities.

Segala will provide ongoing advice on mobile device accessibility for the UK’s market leader in mobile web products. Segala is currently one of only two W3C consortium members in the UK to provide a web accessibility conformance validation service.

O2’s Dermot O’Mahony, head of portal production, said, “More than half our customer base is online and many need assistance to navigate our website effectively, due to impaired sight or a disability.

“People accessing the web from the array of new mobile devices are another important web community. We wanted an accessible and compliant website that ultimately offers our customers a better experience.”
