Our Goal

We want everyone who visits Forged4x4.com and uses our platform to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

To help us ensure a positive experience for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user-friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA, and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Forged4x4 website and platform.

By ensuring a Level AA accessibility conformance, we allow for assistive technology such as screen readers, plugins, and browser extensions to add further functionality needed by the individual user.

How are we doing?

The Forged4x4 website (forged4x4.com) is considered to be WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliant.

All products on the Forged4x4 platform are built to be WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliant. In the case where an accessibility bug was not caught before releasing it, we will add it to our update schedule along with an expected date for having the bug fixed.

What are we doing?

At Forged4x4 we are committed to ensuring a good experience for all users, and we have taken several measures to achieve this:

  • We have established a central team responsible for driving accessibility efforts
  • We have stated our commitment to accessibility in internal employee policies
  • We offer accessibility training to all employees
  • We have developed an internal design system of reusable components that have been holistically tested for accessibility
  • We use our own automated accessibility checks for testing everything we build
  • We have accessibility professionals conduct manual audits of all new features released
  • We give out a monthly Accessibility Award to internal teams that have made a special effort to ensure our products are inclusive; this improves our own culture around building accessible products

Upon request, Forged4x4 will arrange for the provision of accessible formats and communication supports for persons with disabilities in a timely manner that takes into account each person’s accessibility needs due to disability.

We champion global inclusion by empowering people to do more through digital accessibility, which is at the heart of our company.

We are committed to ensuring that digital solutions and content developed, or acquired, by Forged4x4 meet a high level of accessibility. This means either conformance with level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 or ensuring that the solutions are effective, efficient, engaging, error-tolerant, and easy to learn for users of all abilities.

We pledge that should a conflict arise between release deadlines, aesthetics, and the production of accessible solutions and content that accessibility will remain a priority.
