The company wants anyone who visits a PDA-created website to enjoy the experience and convenience.
Productive Dentist Academy (PDA), a leading dental consulting and marketing firm, announced a significant step forward in its commitment to inclusivity and accessibility online. All dental practice websites produced by PDA will now offer improved accessibility options, including reduced motion features and dyslexia-friendly enhancements. These enhancements are designed to ensure an inclusive digital experience for users of all abilities.
“Website accessibility is something I truly take to heart. Having an accessible website means that it is developed for users with disabilities such as vision impairment,” says Kenny Davenport, PDA’s UX Design Engineer, in a press release announcing the new features.
Davenport’s inspiration for this endeavor came from a personal experience in which he observed a family member with severe visual impairment using specialized tools to access a website. This encounter
highlighted the challenges faced by individuals with disabilities in accessing digital content and ignited a commitment to make a difference.
Davenport, who is passionate about this initiative, emphasizes the importance of website accessibility, noting that users with disabilities should be able to navigate websites comfortably. With the introduction of reduced motion and dyslexia-friendly options, PDA hopes to ensure that all website users can access digital content seamlessly.
PDA’s newly implemented features include increased visual contrast, larger text and cursors, highlighted links, and reduced motion options for individuals who are sensitive to motion. These features are designed to also make the content more reader friendly for those with dyslexia, further enhancing overall user experience.
Using rigorous testing and adjustments, PDA meets standard accessibility criteria but also takes additional steps to ensure the inclusivity of its websites. The company is dedicated to continually incorporating new features to improve the user experience for all visitors.
“We have been gradually integrating these new accessibility enhancements to the websites we produce, and they will be available on all PDA-created websites in the coming months,” says PDA Co-founder & CEO Dr. Victoria Peterson in the press release. “At PDA, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to easily engage with dental practices online to learn the information and services each practice provides without any barriers.”
