We bring you the story of how the first website of the tourist board was created, which was adapted for people with disabilities

first_imgLet’s not just stop with public institutions When researching the term “Accessibility”(Digital accessibility) from Lloyds noticed that a large part of the population has problems with dyslexia, low vision and blindness. This was an additional motivation to implement special specifications from the very beginning when creating the website, which will be used by a wider circle of users. That’s why Lloyds decided to devise their own solution for digital accessibility at this level of complexity. Domagoj Ostović, Lloyds: The job turned out to be extremely demanding and challenging, but we are proud to have been given this opportunity Za blind personse have adapted the website so that the user’s screen reader recognizes the text, images, links, as well as the options of the page itself (buttons, links, menus, etc.), whose adaptation allows the blind person to use the website and all its functionalities. To this end, they have implemented “ARIA” (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) tags that screen readers use to recognize the content of the website. Font adjustment, night view and additional font color contrast options, font spacing, line spacing, and screen reader adjustment are just some of the accessibility settings they are proud of. The first website of a tourist board that is adapted for people with disabilities and made according to the highest standards of web adaptation in Croatia is the website of the Zadar Tourist Board – zadar.travel Increase font size and modular font scale In addition to companies from the tourism sector, institutions and companies providing health services (polyclinics, clinics, etc.) from Lloyds are invited to adapt their websites in a way that adapts them for people with disabilities. “In general, all activities that fall within the tertiary and quaternary sectors of the economy should think about improving their digital products because they are important to people with disabilities. ” concludes Ostović. To embed accessibility customization to make your website available to a wider range of users, contact Lloyds by email: [email protected] At the end of September, the legislation came into force European Web Accessibility which requires that all EU public sector websites must be adapted for a wider range of users, emphasizing the needs of people with disabilities. Given the large number of such sectors in Croatia, this is a great opportunity, but also a challenge for IT companies whose main activity is the development of digital products, especially the development of websites and mobile applications. In addition to functional and design adjustments to the font, ie size and spacing, which are, for example, important for dyslexics, the site also has the ability to work in dark mode, but also an integrated content reader in all languages ​​that automatically turns on if used by a visually impaired or blind person. has the system turned on by default on your computer, as well as many other functions.  Kristina Tubić from the Croatian Association of the Blind states that about 80 million people with disabilities live in the European Union, most of whom travel and visit tourist destinations. This information should motivate tourism institutions, accommodation and tourism service providers to adapt their digital solutions to a wider range of users. Such a change will, on the one hand, have a socially beneficial effect, while on the other hand, it will affect the overall improvement of the business. In theirs accessibility adjustments they use an open source font called OpenDyslexic, a font specifically designed for dyslexics that is constantly being improved according to user feedback. To make it easier to recognize letters, they use a font whose letters have thicker bottoms, which more clearly shows the direction of the letters. The thickened bottom makes it easier to recognize which side of the letter is down or up, that is, the different thickness of the letters helps so that the brain does not turn the letters over. A font where the bottom of each individual letter is equally bold also helps the line of text. Such unique letter shapes can help prevent confusion when reversing and replacing letters. OpenDyslexic font Dark mode work It was on the topic of an adaptive website to the needs of people with disabilities that I spoke to an IT company Lloyds design from Labin which is a leader in digital accessibility of websites in Croatia and which has designed its own solution for digital accessibility at this level of complexity. The main goal was that the website has a real value that is its purpose, and not just to do the job according to the given criteria and to provide comprehensive tourist information to guests with disabilities who visit Zadar.  The project of adapting content on the web for people with disabilities was done in cooperation with disability associations in Zadar, especially with the umbrella Association of the Physically Disabled of Zadar County, so that all changes have real value and provide information to guests with disabilities visiting Zadar.  Digital accessibility: How to adapt websites for the needs of people with disabilities according to the new European Web Accessibility legislation Furthermore, the OpenDyslexic font increases the spacing between letters when using a special type of italic font to make the letters easier to read, or to alleviate the symptoms of dyslexia.  Although the regulations stipulate that the public sector is obliged to adapt to people with disabilities, Ostović believes that the private sector should adapt to existing and future, ie potential users, in order to raise awareness and improve its business. In addition to the option to include a special font type, there is also an option to increase font size which helps visually impaired people to read the content of the website more clearly. On zadar.travel website implemented modular scale for fonts. When the user activates the option for a larger font, the fonts on the modular scale are increased by one level more, an adequate size for the visually impaired. This level of adaptation of the website was done for the first time, and we realized it in cooperation with associations of disabled people, Ostović emphasizes and adds that he would like to thank Mr. Filip Jadrijev, Secretary of the Association of Physically Handicapped of Zadar County, for feedback implementation of the adaptation of the website for persons with disabilities for the needs of the website of the Zadar Tourist Board. After they created a new website for the Zadar Tourist Board, they started talking about the directive that requires public sector entities to adapt their digital solutions for users with special needs, says Ostojić about the moment when Lloyds began to deal intensively with the challenge of adapting the web. sites for the needs of people with disabilities. Also one of the functionality of accessibility customization is night mode rada. Although they implemented it at the client’s request, they used it to enhance the contrast with additional text coloring options so that people with color blindness could read the content of the website more easily. The text coloring option is also available on the original version of the zadar.travel website. The article was done in collaboration with Lloyds design Lloyds design is a digital agency that provides a comprehensive service of digital product development in a way that in addition to the development of mobile and web applications provides a service of creating and developing a visual identity or brand, and the development of custom systems. Their team consists of passionate individuals who love good food, socializing, dedication, simple things, trends and Google. They have over 300 successfully completed projects for clients around the world – UK, USA, Canada, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Germany, Austria, France, and many others. “The project is very important, because it is not intended only for users in Zadar, but also for all guests with disabilities who come to Zadar from all over Croatia and the world. As I am a physically disabled person who uses a wheelchair, it was important to me that the website of the Tourist Board provides information on where and how disabled people can move around Zadar, or whether they can visit restaurants, theater and museums, or how to access apartments and the like. . In that sense, I expect the site to have more and more information day by day”Pointed out during the presentation of the adapted website, Filip Jadrijev, Secretary of the Association of the Physically Disabled of Zadar County, and concluded that they now finally have a unique place that can be visited by a large population of people with disabilities, regardless of disability In the continuation of the conversation with Domagoj Ostović, CEO of Lloyds design-a find out how the accessibility adaptation they implemented on the redesigned website of the Zadar Tourist Board enabled the use of the website to a wider circle of users and what feature of the adaptation it serves, ie what problem it solves.  IT company Lloyds design from Labin is a leader in digital accessibility of websites in Croatia We are the first company in Croatia to design solutions for digital accessibility at this level of complexity, he pointed out Domagoj Ostović, CEO of Lloyds designand added that they have simplified the solution as much as possible, thus making the use of customization options tailored for more and less experienced users. “Easy usability is the result of many hours of work and research guided by the recommendations of CARNet ” emphasizes Ostović. “In my opinion, this is a high level of adjustment. Thus, the zadar.travel website is now accessible to all blind and partially sighted people, but with different levels of low vision. As we have different levels of low vision, by emphasizing the nuances of contrast or color, we have taken into account all the tasks in the adaptation of the web. The job proved to be extremely demanding and challenging, but we are proud to have been given this opportunity. ” Ostovic pointed out Option for increase in thinning it helps both visually impaired and dyslexic people, ie it improves the readability and speed of reading the text. Option for increasing the spacing between letters helps dyslexic people reduce the symptoms of dyslexia by reducing reading errors caused by mixing and substituting letters. Larger spacing between letters improves readability and letter recognition. The solution is to incorporate a 2-pixel spacing which spacing is optimal to recognize letters faster and easier, while on the other hand maintaining word clarity to avoid misreading.
