Accessibility is what advanced technologies set sights on. Since online accessibility comes to prominence nearly in all areas of life, our client – Between The Sheets – linens & home décor store, took heed to ensure its e-commerce business to be ADA compliant. DIZZARRO, undoubtedly, facilitated with this adjustment. Moreover, our team have done an outstanding job on homepage customization.

IMPLEMENTATION OF ADA STANDARDS
https://www.betweenthesheetsinc.com is a large store based on BigCommerce platform. In order to provide for unhindered access to online shopping, DIZZARRO have brought the website in line with The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The latter is a ‘federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in everyday activities’ (quote from https://www.ada.gov).
Therefore, our team have chosen accessiBe as web accessibility platform. It allowed to integrate a multitude of special adjustments which are aimed at offering easy-to-shop experience. These include, but not limited to, the following individual settings:
- content adjustments: fonts, scaling, alignment, emphasis, spacing;
- color & display adjustments: contrast, saturation, gamut;
- navigation: sounds, images, cursor preference, etc.
In addition, we added ALT DESCRIPTION feature to help visitors in accurate perceiving of visual & text content.
HOMEPAGE CUSTOMIZATION ACTIVITIES
Another main focus was put on homepage customization. At the outset, we substituted the carousel by a Hero image and added another image block. As an aside, both changes were performed through Stencil. Down the road, a set of adjustments have been introduced to the homepage header.
Needless to say, DIZZARRO made sure that all introductions were fail-safe & met the best mobile usability practices.
