We are extremely proud to have launched a new website in cooperation with a client that has been with us for a few years now.
Safe + Sound of Somerset, NJ chose FatLab to build their new website after engaging us to support and host their previous site for a couple of years.
Clean & Simple Web Design for Easy Access to Information
The new website was built using a custom theme on WordPress. Given the nature of this nonprofit’s mission, our focus was on a clean and easy-to-navigate website on which critical resources could be found quickly.
A Critical Community Domestic Violence Resource
Safe + Sound is a domestic violence community resource in Somerset, NJ. They offer safety, education, and emergency/support services to the community, people suffering from domestic violence, and those that are recovering from abusive situations.
Visitors to this site are looking to get involved in this critical mission or are seeking help, sometimes emergency help.
Built for Accessibility (For All Users)
A super clean, not heavily designed, interface allows the various audiences to find what they seek quickly. The site also features an emergency “Leave Site” button that quickly closes the window and makes it hard for others to see what was being browsed.
With the focus on ease of use, it is incredibly important that the site be accessible to all audiences no matter of disabilities or other factors that may restrict them from consuming the contained information.
WCAG (“ADA”) Compliance
Though FatLab builds all of our sites with accessibility in mind, Safe + Sound took accessibility a step further by licensing a product/service from ReciteMe.
ReciteMe is an accessibility software company that provides a plugin to the site that allows users to take advantage of a comprehensive suite of accessibility tools. The tool includes but is not limited to the following features:
- Real-time language translations
- Text-to-speech narration
- Contrast changes
- Font-size changes
- Reading focus masking
- Much more
Accessibility without Additional Development Costs
ReciteMe was very easy to work with and their integration was a piece of cake which meant that beyond the licensing of the product/service there were no additional development costs for the client.
I’m very pleased with their service and product so far and as accessibility compliance becomes even more important for our clients to meet, I believe this is a solid solution to ensure the highest level of accessibility for website users.
Continued Website Support
Safe + Sound will continue to host their website with FatLab where they will receive ongoing security, performance, and support services through our Watch Dog website maintenance plan.
