Accessibility is important to us
What we want to say: For us as passionate believers in true collaboration, the focus is not only on our tool, but above all on the people who use it. In a nutshell: Accessibility is a topic close to our core and creating true inclusivity is a commitment for us. As a leading manufacturer of secure collaboration software, we take responsibility for ensuring that all users can use our app and work together equally and without limitations. That is why we are committed to digital accessibility out of a strong sense of conviction.
Step by step, we are working to make our software accessible to all people and are continuously improving. Because in both the analogue and even more so in the digital world, no barriers should exist, but equal opportunities should be created for everyone. “We change how teams collaborate” – that is our mission, also in terms of accessibility.
What is accessibility in the digital context?
Accessibility in the digital context refers to the design of digital products, services or content (such as software, app or website) so that they are accessible and usable by all people, regardless of their individual abilities or limitations.
The goal of digital accessibility is to ensure that everyone can equally benefit from, easily access and navigate the possibilities of the digital world – regardless of any disabilities. Accessibility in the digital context refers to appropriate and predefined design and functionality. This includes alternative text for images, clear headings, high contrast, keyboard navigation and compatibility with screen readers. The implementation of accessibility promotes the inclusion of all stakeholders and enables all users equally to use digital content and services without restriction.

The role of accessibility for visual collaboration
Accessibility in digital collaboration means that collaboration tools in particular are designed and developed in such a way that they can be used effectively by all users regardless of their individual abilities or limitations. All team members should be able to participate equally in the collaboration, contribute and benefit from the functions and advantages of the collaboration platform.
Accessible collaboration software enables users with disabilities to navigate, communicate and share ideas effectively. It fosters an inclusive and diverse environment for collaboration, increasing teamwork, creativity and productivity. It helps avoid exclusion and promotes open communication without restrictions. Accessibility is not only an ethical obligation in everyday work, but also a legal requirement in many countries.
