Providing accessible digital products – from apps to websites – is becoming an essential requirement for many businesses across Australia. Approximately 20% of the country's population identifies as having disability and contribute over $50.4 billion a year to the Australian economy. Ensuring accessibility is factored into digital offerings is not only of benefit to creating a more inclusive society; it makes good business sense!

TTC Global works with many leading private sector companies, government departments, and For Purpose organisations, assisting them to improve the accessibility of their digital products, wherever they are in their accessibility journey.

Guiding Organisations to Embed Accessibility

At TTC Global, we envision a future where the digital world is accessible and usable by all. This guiding principle informs everything we do, from our initial conversations with clients to the delivery of our services. By integrating accessibility into the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) and advocating for a shift-left approach, we aim to not only reduce costs but also enhance usability for everyone.

Our approach to digital accessibility is holistic and unique. We strive to embed accessibility practices into the very fabric of organisations, making it an integral part of their day-to-day operations.

We have a professional, expert team of digital accessibility practitioners who focus on guiding and supporting teams to think about and undertake accessibility so that it integrates into how you operate.

How We Can Support You

We support our clients in many ways:

  • Strategic Guidance: We work closely with organisations to develop comprehensive strategies, roadmaps, and frameworks tailored to their specific needs and objectives.
  • Consulting: Our team of experts provides hands-on support across various business functions, including design, development, and testing, to ensure accessibility is ingrained at every stage of the process.
  • Tooling: Leveraging cutting-edge accessibility testing tools, designed in collaboration with people with disabilities, we enable organisations to conduct thorough assessments and identify areas for improvement. Tooling can support scalability of accessibility testing.
  • Learning and Development: Through technical training and coaching sessions, we empower teams to enhance their knowledge and skills in digital accessibility

By designing with accessibility in mind, we all benefit.
