Challenge:
ZenythGroup was selected to develop a new CMS-driven website with integration to JAZZHR for applicant tracking functionality. The site is specifically designed to be easily accessible to visitors with a wide range of disabilities including visual, auditory, motor, and cognitive disabilities.

Solution:
Build a clean and modern new site that adheres to standards based on the internationally recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and new 2.1 standards.

Result:
The new site was designed to meet WCAG guidelines by including the use of larger font sizes for text, adhering to a streamlined and high-contrasting color palette, enabling hassle-free navigation for all users including those using assistive technology, and employing clear and simplified language. By incorporating feedback from employees with disabilities, as well as community members without disabilities, ZenythGroup was able to ensure a smooth and enjoyable online experience for all users.
