Making the Digital World Safer and More Accessible

Hi, I’m Linda Klaver. I studied Communication and Multimedia Design, where I created user interfaces. During my studies, I learned about the importance of intuitive interfaces to ensure that products are easy to use and navigate, which increases user satisfaction. 

For the past 2 years, I have been working as a User Experience Designer at Nixon Digital. Our goal is to make the digital world as accessible and safe as possible. 

Why Accessibility Matters 

About a year ago, I completed training in web design accessibility. During the training, I learned about the crucial importance of creating designs for everyone. Accessibility is not just a nice-to-have; it’s a must-have. 

As designers, we have the power to shape experiences that are inclusive and accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities. It’s important to remember that not all disabilities are visible; many people live with invisible conditions. Accessibility in web design means creating websites that can be used by everyone, irrespective of their physical abilities, technical limitations, or environmental conditions. 

Legal Requirements 

Guidelines have been developed to make web content accessible to people with various disabilities. These are known as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Many countries have adopted the WCAG standards, and there are laws and regulations mandating web accessibility. In the United States, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires websites to be accessible to individuals with disabilities. Similarly, the European Web Accessibility Directive mandates that public sector websites and mobile apps meet specific accessibility standards. Non-compliance can lead to legal repercussions and damage to a brand’s reputation. 

Our Solution to Accessibility 

To provide an at-a-glance overview of where issues occur—whether in specific product groups or business units the accessibility module is integrated into the platform. By scanning the entire portfolio at once, the platform quickly identifies areas where things are going well, where improvements are needed, and where compliance has not yet been achieved. 

The Nixon Platform does this by providing a score from 0 to 100, with the following meanings: 

0 – 49 = weak performance 

50 – 89 = medium performance 

90 – 100 = strong performance 

By identifying issues at a glance, you can take immediate action. Beyond the legal obligations imposed by various accessibility acts, ensuring accessibility for your visitors is also a moral duty. 


With the user-friendly Nixon Platform, you not only maintain control over your website portfolio, privacy standards, and security standards but also ensure they meet fundamental accessibility standards.  

Being prepared for upcoming accessibility regulations makes you a frontrunner, not only in terms of compliance and organizational standards but also for all your potential visitors.
