What is the universal design of ICT?

In Norway, it is required by law that the vast majority of websites and applications must meet a variety of requirements for universal design, cf. regulations on the universal design of ICT.

To achieve this, designers, developers and editors must work closely together and meet the requirements of their fields of expertise.

Universal design is about designing digital solutions so that we take into account the variation in functional capacity that exists in the population. Then we also reach those with disabilities, avoiding that anyone falls outside digitally.

Nye krav fra februar 2023 – alle offentlige nettsider skal ha en tilgjengelighetserklæring

Fra februar 2023 er alle offentlige selskap er pliktige til å oppfylle totalt 47 WCAG-krav på sin nettløsning. For å publisere tilgjengelighetserklæringen, er du pliktig å teste de 47 kravene opp mot din løsning, slik at du har grunnlaget som skal til for å fylle ut erklæringen. Kravet om tilgjengelighetserklæring gjelder offentlige bedrifter, men vi anbefaler også privateide selskaper å følge samme krav for å sikre gode løsninger som er funksjonelle for alle.Les mer om tilgjengelighetserklæring hos uutilsynet.

Our expertise — how can we contribute?

At Increo, we have good expertise in universal design and the requirements that need to be in place for your web solution. Through thorough testing procedures for WCAG requirements, we quality-check your network solution against the requirements required. After completing the check, you will receive a report with the results for your website and the measures that need to be taken to meet the requirements that need to be in place. For public entities, this will be the basis of the accessibility statement. The measures may be improvement in the design, development or in the actual content of the website.

We have a full overview of The WCAG requirements that must be met, and a basic understanding of the requirements and why universal design is so important. By working with us, you can rest assured that you are receiving good advice in the process.

Universal design makes the internet better for everyone

Many of the principles of universal design intended to help those with disabilities benefit the ease of use also for the able-bodied. See just a few examples from everyday life here:

  • Providing a good enough contrast level between colors is important for those with low vision, but also for someone with good vision when out in the sun.
  • Clear language and clear structure of the content can help someone with dyslexia or difficulty concentrating, making the content easy to read also for everyone else.
  • Subtitled videos or a text summary are a necessity for people who don't hear. Plus, it's great for a person who sits on the bus and has left their headphones at home.
