    Accessibility As A Service

    Accessibility Service ensures your digital assets comply with EAA regulations

    Accessibility Service

    If you service end-users via digital channels or sell products online, you must comply with the European Accessibility Act by June 2025. Though it may seem far off, the deadline is fast approaching considering the time needed for multiple rounds of testing and development.


    What is The European Accessibility Act (EAA)?

    The European Accessibility Act (EAA) is a directive aimed at ensuring the full participation of people with disabilities in society. It provides a common EU definition and implementation framework for accessibility requirements in certain products and services. The EAA will significantly impact industries operating within the EU, requiring them to ensure accessibility in their products and services, including for example eCommerce and banking. Companies must ensure that their products and services are accessible to people with disabilities. This includes electronic devices, software, websites, mobile apps, and more.


    So, how can Solteq help you?

    Ensuring your digital products and services are accessible without losing functionality requires immediate action.

    Our Accessibility Service is provided using a proven framework, to ensure your digital assets both comply with The European Accessibility Act regulations and offer the best customer experience for all your existing and prospective customers. 

    Ensuring your eCommerce website meets EAA Accessibility regulation seems obvious, but with changing WCAG/ WAI-ARIA guidelines and complex design and integrations, achieving compliance can be a costly and time-consuming challenge.
