We strive for greater digital accessibility – for inclusion and a better user experience.

Removing digital barriers helps people with impaired perception or physical abilities access online offerings. However, accessibility (a11y for short) is much more than that: it improves usability for all users.

Ensuring online accessibility for everyone will become mandatory at the latest when the provisions of the European Accessibility Act come into force. Our project implementation experience enables us to assist in developing barrier-free products.

Our Accessibility Offerings

We have set ourselves the goal of raising awareness of accessibility in project work and of implementing it in accordance with current guidelines. We can, therefore, provide you with optimum support in implementing the provisions of the European Accessibility Act and in creating products which are accessible to everyone.


We help develop barrier-free applications.


We are already taking accessibility into account – even before the European Accessibility Act comes into full force.

End-to-end project support

We can ensure accessibility at all stages of your IT project.

Accessibility by inovex

To help our customers develop products which are as barrier-free as possible, we offer a wide range of accessibility services, both within projects and beyond:

  • Preparation for a11y audits (for existing products)
  • Development of new products which consider accessibility right from the start
  •  Integration of a11y into the quality assurance pipeline: automated testing, etc.
  • Training on general basics, guidelines, and technical feasibility

What is the European Accessibility Act?

From 2025, all websites in the EU, with a few exceptions, must be optimised according to a11y criteria laid down in the European Accessibility Act. This act was drafted at EU level and is currently being transposed into national law. Its aim is to reduce barriers for groups of people with impairments and to provide them with experiences equivalent to those of users without impairments. This means that every website must also be accessible to users with impairments.

Accessibility means making (digital) systems accessible to as many people as possible, even if they have limited perception or physical abilities. It thus enables a more inclusive workplace and – particularly in web projects – a better SEO ranking.

Our accessibility certification

Ongoing commitment

As part of our ongoing commitment to helping clients implement accessible websites, we place a strong emphasis on continuous development. Eight of our dedicated team members have come together to complete the W3C’s Web Accessibility Course. Through intensive discussion, they have not only gained a wealth of knowledge, but also established best practices for real-world application. The course has also enabled them to gain a deeper understanding of different audiences and insights into how they interact with the web. With the successful completion of the course, all participants are now proud holders of W3C certification. We are now well equipped to provide you with professional and competent support. 

Why Accessibility?

Accessibility: Essential for some, useful for all.

Accessibility features not only serve as aids for people with impairments, but also improve usability for all users. Deaf people, for example, rely on subtitles for videos. This feature, however, also benefits people on public transport who do not have headphones with them but who want to watch films, or people learning a new language whose listening comprehension is enhanced by subtitles.

Being able-bodied is temporary.

While some people have impairments from birth, the majority of impairments arise only over time. These include both permanent impairments, such as age-related deteriorations in vision or motor skills, and temporary impairments like broken limbs. Even users whose hands are currently full can benefit from accessibility features.

Access to digital information is a human right.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities defines access to digital information as a human right. By developing accessible websites, we enable people to exercise this right.

At its core, the web is barrier-free.

“The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect,” says Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web. The web was designed to be available to all people, regardless of hardware, software, language, location, and abilities. We strive to maintain this inherent accessibility in our projects.

Higher SEO rankings

Accessibility on the web is important, a view shared by major search engines such as Google, for which accessibility has now become a ranking factor. Accessible websites are evaluated more positively and may thus achieve higher rankings.
