Showbie strives to foster a caring and inclusive community that builds to the needs of all our users. We recognize that we have work to do in order to improve. There are still barriers within our applications that prevent users with disabilities from experiencing all of the features we offer.
To improve the accessibility of our applications, the team at Showbie is taking the following steps:
- We are working with a third-party accessibility firm, Level Access, to provide our team with an official audit of our system and assist our team with prioritization of the highest impact issues for our team to fix.
- We have dedicated resources and focus towards accessibility so that we are able to meet a higher level of compliance sooner.
- We are educating our team and adjusting our processes so that we can maintain accessibility compliance indefinitely even as our products and the requirements change.
- We have conducted a self-assessment of our current level of compliance (see below). We will update this assessment as we receive the official audit results from Level Access, and as we make progress towards compliance.
Feedback is always welcome. We all live different experiences, and our team would appreciate it if you would be willing to share your experiences with us.
If you have questions, concerns, suggestions, or general comments that you would like to share about the accessibility of Showbie, please fill out our accessibility contact form.
