Our Accessibility Statement

updated November, 2021

Mangrove Web Development  is committed to ensuring accessibility of its website and products to people with disabilities. We strive to continually monitor and improve our performance and services to be compliant at the highest standards possible.

Our company aims to:

  • Invest in our team’s knowledge of accessibility through online training and certification.
  • Create and maintain a content guide for our contributors and employees to follow best practices for inclusive images, content, and language.
  • Continually monitor our own website via Site Improve and maintain WCAG 2.1 Level A as closely as possible. Address features that are not conformant to WCAG 2.1 Level A and amend them as soon as feasible.
  • Audit internal company practices to assess accessibility and inclusivity across all departments and communication platforms.
  • Eventually make our website conformant to WCAG 2.1 Level AA standards.
  • Do a full manual audit of our website to test accessibility by 2023.
  • Build accessibility into our Code of Ethics.

Our current site

We re-launched our website in July 2021 with accessibility in mind.  We designed and built our new site to conform to WCAG 2.1 Level A, and continually monitor our site status via SiteImprove.

When auditing our website we specifically review and address the following areas:

  • Structural Markup
  • W3C WAI-Aria Landmarks
  • Access Keys
  • Images
  • Links
  • Forms
  • Scripts
  • Visual Design

Current Conformance Status and Audit Data

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Mangrove Web Development’s website, products and services are conformant to WCAG 2.1 level A with minor known issues.


  • Our current marketing website now scores a level of 100/100 for accessibility using Google’s Lighthouse accessibility tool. Prior to July, 2021, our website scored 50/100.
  • Technical Specifications: Our website uses HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP

For Products and Services:

Product (Standard WordPress Theme):

  • Our base WordPress theme has built-in accessibility features that conform to the best of our ability to WCAG 2.1 Level A.  We use this theme as a starting point for all client projects.
  • Browser Compatibility
    • We test our work in the most current stable version of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Edge*), and Mozilla Firefox. Enhanced design to support for older browser versions, is available upon request. Browsers older than 2 major versions are not included unless specifically requested by the client.
  • Assistive Technology Compatibility

  • When our services include the use WordPress, we always start from our base theme that has specific accessibility features implemented, but is not fully compliant to standards.
  • When our services include the use of Webflow, we follow the same standards as for our WordPress sites to the best of our ability.  Webflow is continually improving their accessibility best practices and accessibility testing tools.
  • When our services include the use of Squarespace, we follow accessibility guidelines to the best of our ability within the templates. In Squarespace we have limited control over some code elements that negatively affect accessibility.
  • We offer additional packaged and customized services to clients to meet the level of accessibility compliance desired by the client.
  • While we are not liable for new, updated and existing web content on the websites of our clients, we are responsible for providing information, resources, and support to any clients that are willing and able to invest in accessibility compliance.

Completed goals to date:

  • Make our base-templates and the Mangrove Web Custom plugin comply as closely as possible with WCAG 2.1 A standards.
  • Always offer accessibility testing and services to our clients that fit within their budget range and goals.
  • Review accessibility best practices in our content development process regardless of if a client has chosen to explicitly comply with WCAG or ADA guidelines.
    • Provide links to accessibility guidelines, checklists, and tips within the template for all client manuals
  • For clients that do choose to aim for compliance:
    • Support in developing a program to maintain compliance to their standards that includes a third-party audit to compliance standards.
