Accessibility is something which larger organisations like Microsoft has been keen on developing in recent years. The key thing to understand is that accessibility also refers to physical access, which is why Perito is changing tack slightly to give both important concepts and equal voice.
Digital Accessibility fits neatly under the concept of Inclusive Digital Environments. We don’t just want to stop at web pages but also to look at how humans interact with technology right through from classrooms to software at work and to hardware and conferencing tools whilst we are at home.
An Inclusive Digital Environment doesn’t restrict the conversation to being about how humans can access and egress from an app or piece of software instead it allows us to explore usability, visitability and wellbeing in account alongside the design.
Perito’s Inclusive Digital Environments incorporate all the elements of the human’s physical and natural environment and take it into the digital realm.
We consider how the digital environment impacts of social exclusion and vulnerable users. How the physical and built environments impact on the creation of an inclusive digital environment especially important when you consider how much time people will be working from home in the post Covid-19 era.
There is so much to get excited about and as we explore the digital environment, we must first and foremost place the user at the heart of everything we do. Otherwise we are simply replicating the same mistakes that have and are constantly being made in the natural and built environments.
There is only one option for businesses, organisations and governments to consider and that is the Inclusive Digital Environment. Once, after many years, we won’t have to worry about the prefix of ‘Inclusive’ because the human being will automatically be put at the heart of everything we make and innovate for our digital worlds.
Perito can help you and your organisation or company look at making their entire technology agenda.
We help organisations know how easy it can be to create the most amazing inclusive environments.
"We’d like to thank James and his team for their professional approach, seamless dealings with us and satisfactory outcome for this survey.
The Perito team has added value in ways we hadn’t expected. In that it has enabled us to understand the costs associated with the works which we have and will use to good effect in our future planning and strategy. We are a charity and as such have to manage our funds wisely. Perito’s practical approach and their ability to recommend changes that had little or no cost as well as the larger more costly changes, has meant we are able to improve our Branch within our limited budget. Highly recommend." - Samaritans Plymouth Branch
"As a business owner I am interested in making sure my facilities are as accessible to my clients as possible. I wasn't sure where to start but Perito have been great in making the complex law straightforward and they provided me with a nice report. I was pleased that a lot of the suggestions were really practical and easy to sort out by my regular maintenance team and cost almost nothing to implement. The Perito inspection team were very discreet and courteous. Thanks Perito!" - Ikandu Ltd
"Great job! Above all, we felt that Perito understood that we are a fast paced customer focused business. We really felt that they understood the commercial aspect of our business and the clear layout of the report was great because it has given us a way forward. A thumbs up from all of us here, thanks again." - Fishalicious
