3. ACCESSIBLE - Our websites are code compliant

by Simon Langham ON Sep 16, 2018

What does it mean to have a code compliant website?


A website is required to load on more than one type of device or browser. Your visitor's needs are also likely to vary as much as the browsers. Therefore, as developers, we're required to build websites that work across platforms and for people of most abilities.

"The alt tag is not just for keywords"

You may have heard of alt tags that provide alternative text for images. Contrary to what SEO 'experts' say, these are not just places for keywords but in fact used for visually impaired people to be given a description of the image. However, if the picture is relevant to the page you will please both Google with the keywords and the visually impaired visitor.

Mobile First

Did you know that over 50% of Google searches are now made on mobile devices?

There is a great potential for most of your visitors finding you on mobiles and tablets and therefore, your website needs to be responsive.

A mobile responsive website is designed to work on devices of all screen sizes.

We only develop mobile responsive websites at Unumbox which is to be expected of all developers. What is extra special is that we develop mobile first websites which mean's a mobile browser has less processing to do than a desktop website making a page load faster.

Code Compliant

We did a recent study of 20 development agency websites in Northamptonshire and were proud to have the only website that is fully code compliant.

What does code compliant mean?

Well, there is a code standard that websites and modern browsers should meet to enable continuity and accessibility. The current standard is HTML5 which continues to grow in popularity. Meeting coding standards means a website is less likely to have issues with browsers.
