I created a new website for T Cosgrove Heating, a sister website to the Clarkston based plumbing and heating business but this new site exclusively focuses on the heating side of the business.
The site has been designed to be easy to read and navigate with new photos and images added and updated text to reflect the heating services such as boiler repair, installation and servicing as well as general central heating services.
An accessibility report was produced at the end of the project and after testing and correcting of a couple of issues the website passed the WCAG 2.1 test. An accessibility report page was then added to the site and the link was placed in the bottom navigation section.
The Conservative Friends of Africa / Scotland required a website for their new organisation. The site is designed using a WordPress theme which I customised by changing colours and layout.
WordPress allows clients to update Posts and Pages themselves, giving freedom to expand their own content. There is also an Instagram feed plugin giving recent posts from that social media platform.
The site was designed to pass most WCAG 2.1 AA standards. I especially paid attention to the colour and boldness of any text on colour backgrounds(blue or red), making sure it was highly visible to people with low vision or colour blindness.
A new website was created for T Cosgrove Plumbing and Heating based in Clarkston Glagow.
They offer a varied and comprehensive service and installation of all gas appliances and a plumbing service to cover most plumbing emergencies.
The website has a smartphone friendly design which is modern and accessible. My initial design had the headings with too light a colour which failed at WCAG 2.1 AA level, but this was fixed by darkening the font and now passes the WCAG 2.1 AA criteria.
Please visit Tony’s website(external website) if you are in the Greater Glasgow area and require any plumbing or heating services.
I have recently carried out an audit to analyse the acccessibility of my website.
The findings and fixes using the WAVE Tool installed on my Firefox Browser and manual checks were the following.
⦁ Colour contrast issues with text on coloured background. Now fixed. ⦁ Alt descriptions missing on a few images. Now fixed. ⦁ Tab focus state not highlighted. Now added. ⦁ “Skip to Main Content” link added. ⦁ “One Click Accessibility” plugin activated providing more options to navigate the website.
I aim to keep improving the design and content updates of the website to WCAG 2.1 AA standards. If you have experienced an accessibility problem when visiting this website then let me know? Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
CCA (Carloway Community Association) on the Isle of Lewis aim to promote the well-being of the community largely through the management and development of a community owned and community led facility, to promote social, environmental, cultural, heritage, commercial, and sporting activities.
CCA needed a bright and functional website for members and residents of the area.
This WordPress based website gives Members the ability to login and post news and photos if needed.
