An all-inclusive website is no longer a nice-to-have in today’s society. It is a must-have as almost everyone in the world is connected to the internet to gain access to valuable information every day.

What is ShortPoint Accessibility?
ShortPoint Accessibility is an AI-powered solution that automatically applies remediations to your intranet pages to conform to global standards of accessibility. It is a client-side feature that makes your intranet pages readable, understandable, and usable by people with disabilities.
With ShortPoint Accessibility enabled, you will be able to provide a fully-accessible user experience on your intranets and be completely compliant with accessibility standards in your jurisdiction.
Here are a few features to know about ShortPoint Accessibility.
ShortPoint accessibility uses AI technology to automatically remediate non-compliant elements of your intranet pages both from the front-end and back-end. It scans all your pages, identifies intranet designs or content that is not accessible, and applies script-level changes that will fix accessibility issues. When the AI needs further confirmation of specific items to be remediated, it brings it back to you as a report and requests for your confirmation or action.
This means that you no longer need to spend time and resources to go back to each of your intranet pages and make the changes yourself.
Aside from automatic remediation, users of your intranet pages are also given control to make cosmetic changes to the page according to their needs. This only happens at the user level and allows your page to be personalized and customized as required by your user.
This means you are giving a personalized, value-adding, and all-inclusive user experience for your intranet pages.
Generate an accessibility statement and pass an audit with guaranteed success. Show the world that your Intranet is accessible to all - and mitigate the legal risks for your organization.
With ShortPoint Accessibility, your Intranet gets a Statement of Compliance with the WCAG and ADA standards. Generate the Statement after all accessibility issues are addressed. Declare to the world that you are compliant with the globally recognized standards of Accessibility.
Applied to Scale
As you add new intranet pages to your site, ShortPoint Accessibility is automatically applied in real-time. You no longer have to worry about installing accessibility features to your new pages as you build them.
