Orderspoon Takes the Lead in Digital Accessibility

Orderspoon (by 4 Leaf Labs), an online order app for restaurants, has set a new standard for accessibility in the online order space. The customizable Orderspoon app integrates with Clover POS, and has been updated to ensure compatibility with assistive technology devices (including screen readers and braille displays).

Accessibility Features of the Orderspoon App

The Orderspoon app works seamlessly with assistive technology devices, and conforms with the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 priority AA).

Here are a few notable accessibility features of the app:

  • Keyboard accessibility – all forms, controls, menus, etc. are usable with a keyboard only.
  • Enhanced Readability – the Orderspoon app meets minimum required contrast levels for WCAG 2.0 priority AA compliance (4.5:1)
  • Ease of Navigation – the Orderspoon app includes consistent navigation systems, skip links, and ARIA landmark roles to improve usability and accessibility.
  • Mobile Compatibility – the Orderspoon app is fully responsive, and text can be resized as needed using browser zoom (up to 200%).

Background

In April 2019, Aurora Design and Consulting was commissioned to help the 4 Leaf Labs’ development team update Orderspoon for accessibility with assistive technology devices. During a three-month period, Aurora staff provided training, email/phone support, and accessibility testing services to update the Orderspoon app for accessibility with assistive technology devices.

As work was completed on the Orderspoon app, we provided accessibility evaluation services (including testing with VoiceOver and NVDA screen readers) to verify and document accessibility conformance with WCAG 2.0 priority AA. For accessibility documentation, we provided a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), accessibility information page, and conformance letter.
