Usability & Accessibility Heuristic Review

Many sites do not effectively interact with their users. Confusing navigation, cluttered content arrangement, too many graphics and so many other problems can impact how well your site is received. Potomac can perform a review to determine how well it interacts with guests, and provide you recommendations on what you can do to improve performance.

Just as many sites unintentionally alienate their guests being inaccessible. From bandwidth issues to an inability for handicapped users to read your content, accessibility issues can make a well designed site incomprehensible to the blind or disabled. Potomac can perform an accessibility review, using W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) or Section 508 standards, and provide guidance on how to improve the construction to allow access to those you have inadvertently prevented.
