Our Work

A complete range of Accessibility Services

TFA provides specialized expert consulting services focused on the accessibility, usability, and universal design of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) products, websites, and services. We offer expert consulting to both producers and procurers of ICT products and services. We focus on identifying user needs and developing innovative solutions that often exceed users’ expectations for usability and accessibility.

Evaluation and Remediation

We use proven methodologies to evaluate both live and in-development products and websites against accepted technical standards, including the WCAG 2.0 Guidelines, the Section 508 standards, and the requirements of the ADA. Evaluations can range from limited compliance audits to comprehensive evaluations that include remediation recommendations and the creation of a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). We go beyond satisfying the basic requirements for compliance and deliver detailed reports and solutions that consider both usability and accessibility.

Content & Multimedia Accessibility Services

TFA offers an array of Content and Multimedia Accessibility Services including:
- Evaluating and remediating the accessibility of content in various formats (EPUB, PowerPoint, HTML, PDF, etc.)
- Guiding the development of accessible rich media
- Analyzing and creating meaningful image descriptions for blind and visually impaired users. TFA consultants are highly experienced in creating image descriptions for complex STEM elements.

Accessibility Training Services

Let us train your team to address accessibility upstream. TFA’s training is customized to fit the specific needs of each client and is delivered by individuals familiar with the client’s products. Interactive training sessions can be tailored for a client’s design and development teams, as well as for marketing and management personnel.

Universal Design

Universal access is our goal. TFA's design teams are made up of software and system engineers, interaction designers, industrial designers, human factors engineers, and rehabilitation engineers.

Mobile Accessibility Support

TFA’s consultants provide expertise and practical guidance for achieving accessibility on mobile platforms (iOS and Android) both via mobile-friendly websites and via apps.

Accessibility Planning & Strategy

Whether you are part of a small firm, an educational institution, or a large corporation, we can help you create an Accessibility Roadmap composed of recommended actions that you can take to drive the ongoing accessibility and usability of your digital properties.
