At GigImagine, we are dedicated to providing an inclusive and accessible experience for all users. We believe that everyone, regardless of their abilities, should have equal access to the information and services we offer. We continuously strive to improve our website's accessibility and make it easy for all visitors to navigate, understand, and engage with our content.
Our Commitment to Accessibility
To ensure we maintain accessibility standards, we follow a specific process in every project and workflow. We have a team of dedicated associates who work closely with each department to ensure accessibility concerns are identified and addressed throughout our website's development and maintenance.
We firmly believe that the Internet should be available and accessible to anyone and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the broadest possible audience, regardless of ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairments, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website's Ul (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an Al-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website's HTML, and adapts its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.

Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers can read, comprehend, and enjoy the website's functions. As soon as a user with a screen reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so the can browse and operate your site effectively. Here's how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements:
we run a process that learns the website's components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website's images. It provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts embedded within the image using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. T
o turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website. These adjustments are compatible with popular screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack.
Keyboard navigation optimization:
navigate between radio and checkbox elements using the arrow keys, and fill them in with the Spacebar or Enter key. Additionally, keyboard users will find content-skip menus available at any time by clicking Alt+2, or as the first element of the site while navigating with the keyboard. The background process also handles triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus towards them as soon as they appear, not allowing the focus to drift outside
Users can also use shortcuts such as "M" (menus), "H" (headings), "F" (forms), "B" (buttons). and "G" (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Disability profiles supported on our website
Epilepsy Safe Profile:
this profile enables people with epilepsy to safely use the website by eliminating the risk of seizures resulting from flashing or blinking animations anc risky color combinations.
Vision Impaired Profile:
this profile adjusts the website so that it is accessible to the majority of visual impairments such as Degrading Eyesight, Tunnel Vision, Cataract, Glaucoma, and others.
Cognitive Disability Profile:
this profile provides various assistive features to help users with cognitive disabilities such as Autism, Dyslexia, CVA, and others, to focus on the essential elements more easily.
ADHD Friendly Profile this profile significantly reduces distractions and noise to help people with ADHD, and Neurodevelopmental disorders browse, read, and focus on the essential elements more easily.
Blind Users Profile (Screen-readers): this profile adjusts the website to be compatible with screen-readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack. A screen reader is installed on the blind user's computer, and this site is compatible with it.
Keyboard Navigation Profile (Motor- Impaired): this profile enables motor-impaired persons to operate the website using the keyboard Tab Shift+Tab, and the Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as "M (menus), "H" (headings), "F" (forms), "B" (buttons), and "G" (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Additional Ul, design, and readability adjustments
Font adjustments users can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust the spacing, alignment, line height, and more.
Color adjustments. users can select various color contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted, and monochrome. Additionally, users can swap color schemes of titles, texts, and backgrounds with over seven different coloring options
Animations. epileptic users can stop all running animations with the click of a button. Animations controlled by the interface include videos. GIFs, and CSS flashing transitions.
Content highlighting users can choose to emphasize essential elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements only.
Audio muting users with hearing devices may experience headaches or other issues due to automatic audio laving. This option lets users mute the entire website instantly.
Cognitive disorders - we utilize a search engine linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher the meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others.
we allow users to change cursor color and size. use a printing mode, enable a virtual kevboard. and man other functions.
Assistive technology and browser compatibility
We aim to support as many browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS, and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and MAC users.
