Pressbox (Press Release) -
Wally introduces innovative, personalised Digital Accessibility Experiences (PAX) to ecommerce, creative and developer teams.
Wally, a first of its kind and pioneer in digital accessibility, today comes out of stealth mode to unveil comprehensive accessibility solutions as part of the platform's early adopters program. Its innovations were conceived after recognizing the growing disconnect between consumers' personalization expectations and the current tech landscape alongside the growing organisational divide on content accessibility. With 3 out of 4 users with accessibility preferences abandoning, Wally’s initial modules are designed to help businesses deliver better experiences for digital commerce across desktop and mobile devices.
Wally - 360 Degree Accessibility
With the initial product launch, Wally introduces the first total accessibility score for brands. Using proprietary technology focused on understanding content supply flows and accessibility compliance in order to evaluate user experience efficacy tied to those with disabilities. Results are summarized through an AX Score giving brands a benchmark, alongside prioritised issues and expert recommendations. Users can leverage the no-code solution to achieve personalised accessible experiences and compliance in one.
Designed to radically change how brands view accessibility and personalization together for web, social and media experiences, Wally works in conjunction with browser and operating system accessibility solutions to deliver native, personalised accessibility experiences, improving user journeys that deliver lifts in usage and conversion. With two thirds of traffic now on mobile and deeper journeys linked to better outcomes, the ability to identify accessibility defects, troubleshoot breakdowns in user experience and fix issues in real time is key to boosting engagement and reducing abandonment.
Wally integrates into your content supply process, with use across every stage from production to code development and content hosting— from discovery to ideation to consumer experience,” said Brian Gavin, Co-Founder of Wally. “With product updates becoming more frequent and multi-channel experiences being the norm, ensuring consistent accessibility is essential. A developer friendly dashboard makes it clear what UX flows matter and what usability issues you should address.”

With 360 Content Analyzer, brands can compare their accessibility experience across multiple channels, against Wally bench marks that analyse various metrics and contextual data points (navigation,contrast, text quality, amongst other key attributes).
