Devis works with clients to transform their information platform into a usable, equally accessible tool for all users. For over 10 years we have been applying our accessibility approach to design, develop, and support federal websites and other communication portals that are critical to supporting persons with disabilities. Our award-winning solutions maximize usability and are fully compliant with Section 508 and Federal IT Accessibility & Initiative requirements. We provide sustainable information architecture and design, a tested assessment and remediation process, support and training services, and proven quality assurance.

Devis realizes information is accessed by a variety of user agents and assistive technologies all with different shapes, sizes, and ages; end users could be utilizing legacy equipment or a mobile device. For this reason, Devis practices device agnosticism to ensure all users have a comparable experience, regardless of the technology they are using. This is evident through our work on Disability.gov, an award winning federal website that contains disability-related resources. We considered accessibility and usability at the earliest stages of design to ensure that our design is accessible via the widest possible arrangement of user agents. By factoring in the user experience, we also ensure usability of content, a unique practice we have adopted called, “Usable Accessibility.”

Our holistic approach to Usable Accessibility starts internally; our entire staff undergoes annual accessibility training in both Section 508 and WCAG 2.0. Our subject matter experts track the latest trends, experiment with innovative technologies, and share their knowledge with other team members regularly during brown bag sessions. Whether we are developing a web application, generating content, producing eLearning modules, or serving as a consultant - accessibility is a constant priority at Devis
