Rio Tinto – Accessibility


The brief:

Rio Tinto were aware of accessibility issues, having reached Level 1 compliance with the corporate site, but were looking to increase their rating among FTSE100 companies.

What I did:

  • Accessibility audit of www.riotinto.com to Level 3 of WAI guidelines.
  • Review and audit of 25 other Rio Tinto sites.
  • Review and audit of all sites against text browser (Lynx) and web standards best practice.
  • Technical solution for all errors
  • Plan and scope of upgrade to Level 3 compliance.

The result:

At the time of writing (Jan 05) Rio Tinto had signed off approval for the corporate site, with other upgrades to follow.
