Public organizaton SVET

Case details

Online access to movies with special descriptive technology for visually impaired people, compatibilty with WCAG 2.0 specification, universal design.

Context

Public organization SVET (Light) works as a supporting group for 100 blind and visually impaired people. It established a unique laboratory producing films with descriptive technology, accessible for visually impaired viewers, thanks to a special sound track. SVET regularly organizes movie shows for own members, but online those movies could be available for broader audience.

Problem

The organization did not ever have a website. Its members themselves did not believe that the website may be suitable for independent use by visually impaired people. The accessibility became the top priority of the project. Editorial team did not have any experience in web publishing so that admin interface had to be clear and simple.
