Woodsworth College at UofT
Improving UX through accessibility enhancements.
A long-standing client, Woodsworth College approached me to look for opportunities to enhance the accessibility of their website (which I developed) for people with physical and cognitive disabilities. As an educational institution, there is a requirement to meet accessibility standards.
My initial research entailed understanding current WCAG requirements as well as relevant parts of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). A detailed site audit was prepared and presented to Woodsworth College leadership.
The improvements were vast, and included code changes, legibility enhancement and a focus on delivering content to people who use assistive devices.
"It has been a pleasure to work with Rolf as he works quickly and efficiently to meet our expectations - always cheerful in his correspondence! I am happy to add my name to the list of those who endorse his services."

I’m currently booking new work starting in April 2016. If you’re looking for a small website, interface design or User Experience work, we should talk.
