Offering the resources of a large firm with the personalized attention of a boutique practice, GMR Law has carved a niche for itself by providing tailored assistance to clients navigating complex family matters. To extend this client-centric approach to their digital presence, GMR Law partnered with Zenyth for a fully managed audit and remediation of their website.
Scope of Work: A Commitment to Accessibility and Aesthetics
Our collaboration with GMR Law was focused on ensuring both aesthetic integrity and accessibility compliance:
- Fully Managed Audit and Remediation: Conducted a comprehensive audit and remediation to ensure WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance.
- Client Collaboration: Worked closely with GMR Law to maintain the aesthetic quality of their hero images and text while ensuring sufficient contrast.
- Contrast Switcher: Developed and implemented a contrast switcher to balance aesthetic appeal with accessibility requirements.
- Full WCAG Conformance: Achieved full WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, facilitated by the absence of third-party plugins or embeds.
Aesthetic and Accessible: A Harmonious Balance
One of the standout aspects of this project was the development and implementation of a contrast switcher. This feature allows users to adjust the contrast of hero images and text, thereby maintaining the site's aesthetic appeal while ensuring accessibility.
