UX Challenges

Our goal for this project was making the user experience as accessible as possible, since many of the users will have a range of disabilities including, but not limited to, hearing and sight.

An additional consideration was to make the directory more prominent on the site. In the previous build it was an addtion that was added months after launch and felt as though it was an after thought, well, because it was. Now with an expanded database and a new vision of what the directory would look like it was time to give it more real estate on the site.

UX Solutions

To meet accessibility AA standards we followed guidelines set by WCAG and ADA compliance. This meant making sure our text, colors, butons, images, videos, were all accessible. We also went a step further and added an accessibility tool, AccessiBe to the site to make it even easier for users to use a screen reader, adjust color contrast, and keyboard navigation.

To give the directory more real estate we added the search input into the hero section of the homepage. In addtion the directory was now added into the navigation. It is now more apparent that the directory is the larger purpose of the site, with the secondary purpose being the blog.
